Post-Race Quotes

Tony Kanaan, #44 McDonald's Honda-Reynard - Finished 15th:

"My car wasn't bad, but it's hard to gain positions when you're trying to conserve fuel and you start towards the back. I knew it was going to be a lot of work today. It was a tough weekend for us and it's over. On to the next one."

Steve Horne, Team President:

"Today was a major fuel economy run and when you start in the back, it's pretty hard to save the fuel and run fast. From about a third of the race on, it was a just a fuel economy run."
