Driver:  Danica Patrick

Car: #7 Boost Mobile Dallara/Honda/Firestone

Danica Patrick: "I'm really happy with today's practice. We were able to find a better balance on the car and I think in Indy having a car that you feel comfortable in is most important. You can't drive a bad car around this track and expect to do well. I feel very confident going into tomorrow's qualifying session and I hope to get the Boost Mobile car on the front row."

Driver: Tony Kanaan
Car: #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone

Tony Kanaan: "It was a long day for Team 7-Eleven, we have a problem with the car and we are trying to figure out exactly what that is. The entire team put in a lot of effort. I have to thank my crew for all the set up changes, and the #26 crew for allowing me to take their car out. The day before qualifying that can be a huge risk. It just shows that we stick together as a team and we work together as a team. Hopefully we can figure it out overnight, but if not then I'll just do my best tomorrow."

Driver: Marco Andretti
Car: #26 Team Venom Energy Dallara/Honda/Firestone

Marco Andretti: "I'm pleased with Team Venom Energy's performance today and glad the rain held off. It would have been nice to take home the Fast Friday check, but we got the track time we needed and I think we have a good set up for qualifying. Tomorrow is going to be stressful, for sure, but I think the #26 car will be a pole contender."

Driver: Hideki Mutoh
Car: #27 Formula Dream Dallara/Honda/Firestone

Hideki Mutoh: "The Formula Dream car had a good day. My goal was to reach 225 mph today; I got to 224 mph which is close so that's ok. During the last hour we tried a new set up, but didn't get much speed from the change, so we have a better idea of what to do for tomorrow. The morning practice session tomorrow should be helpful and the #27 car will be ready for qualifying."
