Birmingham: Andretti Autosport Friday report

MARCO ANDRETTI, ...

MARCO ANDRETTI, #26 TEAM VENOM ENERGY DRINK CAR

"We're definitely making gains and improvements, especially over where we were during testing here back in February. We've made the Venom car better today and are only a couple minor changes away from being a pole contender. I think we're looking good as far as getting out of the first qualifying session tomorrow and from there it's all about making the right decisions. The field is so close that everyone has to be on the ball and make good decisions."

RYAN HUNTER-REAY, #37 TEAM IZOD CAR

"We were alright, but we've got a big chunk to go yet with the IZOD car. We could really use a practice tomorrow morning before qualifying. We just need to go make some good changes to the car. This is when it pays to have great teammates. We'll look at what Tony and Marco liked in their cars and apply it for tomorrow. We should be in the ballpark."

TONY KANAAN, #11 TEAM 7-ELEVEN CAR

"Today doesn't count, but obviously it feels really good to be near the top of the chart. It was a good day. Tomorrow morning is going to be very different - a lot cooler - so anything can change. But, I will sleep well tonight, that's for sure."

DANICA PATRICK, #7 TEAM GoDaddy.com CAR

"We learned a lot from both practice sessions today. I'm not too far off on where we need to be but we do have some work to do tonight. Tomorrow's qualifying session will be tight so I hope we get the GoDaddy car dialed in by tomorrow morning."
