Homestead: Andretti Autosport race report

MARCO ANDRETTI, ...

MARCO ANDRETTI, #26 TEAM VENOM ENERGY DRINK CAR
* Finished the race in 7th place; ended the season in 8th place

"The Venom car was good tonight but we made a wrong decision as a team and pitted during that second to last yellow. I almost took it upon myself to stay out - I saw Dixon high in my mirrors and knew he wasn't going to come in. It was a replay in my head of Richmond a couple years ago; the win is right in front of you and you risk throwing it away. It's disappointing but we win and lose as a team."

RYAN HUNTER-REAY, #37 TEAM IZOD CAR
* Ended the race in 11th place; finished the season in 7th place

"Good job to the No. 7 team and the No. 11 team and Marco also had a solid day as well. We were good in traffic but had no speed on our own. We have to go back and look at the No. 37 car this winter and gear up for next year."

TONY KANAAN, #11 TEAM 7-ELEVEN CAR
* Finished the race in 3rd place; ended the season in 6th place

"Putting on a good show was the least we could do for the fans here tonight. I have to thank my crew. We had a moment there, but when we have a good car, it makes my life a whole lot easier. It was a good weekend as a team. I'm looking forward to next year."

DANICA PATRICK, #7 TEAM GoDaddy.com CAR
* Finished the race in 2nd place; ended the season in 10th place

"Hopefully Tony and I put on a good show at the end. It was a tough 19 laps. The GoDaddy.com car was strong. After the start, we were really able to bring it to life. I have to thank the GoDaddy crew for a great job this whole year, even during the rough times. It was a good race, and I think we finished out the season on a strong note."
