TORONTO, Canada (July 12, 2009) - Andretti Green Racing drivers Danica Patrick, Tony Kanaan, Marco Andretti and Hideki Mutoh completed the 10th race of the 2009 IndyCar Series season, Honda Indy Toronto on the Streets of Toronto.

Driver:  Danica Patrick

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

"You definitely have to be aggressive on street courses and today we were. We started in the back of the field and fought our way up to the front. The Boost Mobile/Motorola guys did a great job in the pits and they made the right calls the strategy. I lost a few positions on the second to last restart but I was trying to save fuel. But it's a great result considering the weekend we had. I have to thank all the fans for coming out today and I can't wait to come back next year."

Driver:  Tony Kanaan

Car: #11 Team 7-Eleven/Nestle Pure Life Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"It was a disappointing weekend all around for the Nestle Pure Life team. The guys worked so hard to get the car together yesterday, which makes it even more disappointing. There at the end we had a chance to have a solid finish but made some contact and it ended our day early."

Driver:  Marco Andretti

Car: #26 NYSE iShares Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"It didn't turn out as too bad of a day for the NYSE iShares car considering it seemed to turn into an attrition race. We were able make it to the end and work our way toward the front. The #26 car was quick on the black tires so the longer stint we ran on reds cost us some time and I think we lost a little ground there. The boys did a great job in the pits all day and we're nearing the top-five in points. Overall I'm happy with the top-ten finish today."

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

"It's been a very frustrating weekend for the Formula Dream team and I am disappointed that I didn't have a better finish. We couldn't find the right setup so we had to make a pit stop to made adjustments and that put the #27 car a lap down. Hopefully Edmonton will be better for us in a couple of weeks."
