Darren Manning: No. 14 ABC Supply Dallara/Honda

* Darren Manning on Chicagoland: "We had good qualifying speed there last year [started eighth] which we can go back and start with that. Then we'll add what we've learned this season on the ovals and I think it will help solve the problems we had in the race last year. I'm looking forward to this weekend."

* Darren Manning on Teammate for Chicagoland: "It should help us tremendously to have a teammate this weekend because we can go through twice as many changes. With Franck, it'll be another set of good info which will help us go faster. I can also draft with him in practice so that will help too." [About Franck Perera being a rookie] "He ran well at Miami and I think Chicagoland is an easier track than Miami, so I think he'll be more comfortable there. Plus he's done some ovals in the Indy Lights cars since then so he has more familiarity with the ovals. I see it as a plus for both of us."

* Last Race: Manning and the ABC Supply team started 15th and finished 12th in the Detroit Indy Grand Prix at Belle Isle. He is now 15th in the standings.
