Toronto: Andretti Autosport preview

MARCO ANDRETTI, ...

MARCO ANDRETTI, #26 TEAM VENOM ENERGY DRINK CAR

"Toronto is such a great circuit. I really enjoy driving it, and there's so much history in racing there for us. My father (Michael) won in Toronto seven times; it would be good to put one more win up for the family. The Venom car has potential to be a contender and finish strong this weekend. We're coming back this year as just a team -- not the promoter, as well -- and I think that should really give us a chance to focus more on the cars and winning."

RYAN HUNTER-REAY, #37 TEAM IZOD CAR

"The Honda Indy Toronto is just a great event. It seems every time we race in Canada it's a fantastic race. The Canadian fans are so supportive and passionate about their racing and it really makes it fun for the drivers. I enjoy Toronto; I won my first Barber Dodge Pro Series race there and I can't get enough of the city.

"Coming off a win in the last street circuit we visited (Long Beach), Team IZOD has high hopes for this weekend. We've got lots of work to do and I'm really looking forward to another street race."

TONY KANAAN, #11 TEAM 7-ELEVEN/NESTLE PURE LIFE CAR

"The circuit in Toronto makes for great racing and we saw that in last year's race. As a team, we are very motivated to run well this weekend and contend for the win. This is a point in the season where we really need to keep pushing and get everything we can. We can't afford to give up any more ground in the championship."

DANICA PATRICK, #7 TEAM GoDaddy.com CAR

"This is a tough stretch of the season, for sure. We have several challenging races in a row here and Toronto is certainly one of them. I'm sure it will be extremely competitive and just a tenth-of-a-second here and there will make a huge difference in what kind of result you have. We'll keep working as hard as we can on the GoDaddy car and see what happens this weekend."
