Edmonton: Andretti Autosport qualifying report

MARCO ANDRETTI, ...

MARCO ANDRETTI, #26 TEAM VENOM ENERGY DRINK CAR

"We really needed to take advantage of the Firestone reds today and unfortunately we just weren't able to find the grip we needed. Track position is crucial at a place like this so it's frustrating for the Venom car to start where we are. We'll do what we can to make the best out of the race tomorrow."

RYAN HUNTER-REAY, #37 TEAM IZOD CAR

"We definitely recovered a little bit since yesterday, but we're still struggling with something. We're not satisfied with our qualifying effort overall as a team. But, I know the IZOD guys will give me a great race car. I always know when I wake up in the morning on race day that I've got a shot to put that thing in the top five. We'll do our best at getting a good race car under us tomorrow, but eighth today was like a home run."

TONY KANAAN, #11 TEAM 7-ELEVEN CAR

"It was a tough day for Team 7-Eleven and for the whole team. Sometimes when you're struggling as a team, you try to do too much when you get in the car, and that's what happened. I'm driving the car, so I'm the only one to blame. You try to set the world on fire because you trust in yourself and have a lot of confidence that you can make a difference. Sometimes you go over the limit."

DANICA PATRICK, #7 TEAM GoDaddy.com CAR

"Coming off of a strong weekend in Toronto, we were hoping to keep the momentum going into Edmonton for the GoDaddy.com car. I was in a really tough qualifying group, and I didn't have the speed to make it into the top six today. The first couple laps of tomorrow's race will be very important, and hopefully we'll come out with some clean laps."
