Driver:  Danica Patrick

Car: #7 Boost Mobile/Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"So far this weekend has started exactly the way I hoped it would. The Boost Mobile/Motorola car unloaded fast and felt very comfortable in traffic. The bottom line is that Eddie (Jones) and Marco (Andretti) were able to set up a very good car last year. We ran their 2008 race set up and didn't change a thing for tonight's session. I'm really excited for the rest of the weekend and think we'll be strong Saturday."

Driver: Tony Kanaan
Car: #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"Tonight was a frustrating practice for Team 7-Eleven. Today we started with the same set up we used at Indy; we had a few problems with it there and I think the same problems have found us tonight. We have an idea of what we're up against and the #11 crew will work hard to get us where we need to be for qualifying tomorrow."

Driver: Marco Andretti
Car: #26 Team Venom Energy Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"I think tonight's practice session went well for the #26 car; we got everything accomplished that we had hoped. We started with the same set up we used for the race here last year and were able to make few improvements. I think Team Venom Energy is heading in the right direction and will be a contender come race day."

Driver: Hideki Mutoh
Car: #27 Formula Dream Dallara/Honda/Firestone

Hideki Mutoh:

"I think that so far we have the beginning of a good race car. We focused today's practice on the race set up rather than a qualifying set up for the #27 car. Tomorrow we will work on finding the speed we need for qualifying. Overall I think we are getting closer."
