John Andretti on Phoenix International Raceway ... "I like the city of Phoenix as well as Phoenix International Raceway. I have raced there in both Indy cars and stock cars. Phoenix is a great track that produces exciting races. You really need to have a strong qualifying effort to be successful there. We will do our best in qualifying to ensure the No. 49 team not only has a place in the field on Sunday but a strong finish as well."
