Iowa: Andretti Green Racing preview

Danica Patrick, ...

Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"I am looking forward to going back to the Iowa Speedway. There was such a great fan turnout last year - the fans were excited and that in turn makes the drivers excited. The next three races are going to be challenging. I am getting more confident on the short ovals, and the Motorola team had a great test this week, so we are going to use that momentum going into this weekend in Iowa."

Tony Kanaan, #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"The first race at Iowa in 2007 was interesting for all the drivers. Unfortunately it ended badly for us. Iowa Speedway is a great race track and I think the Team 7-Eleven car is going to be tough to beat. The atmosphere is super and the fans really come out to support the race. Hopefully we'll able to put on another great show this weekend."

Marco Andretti, #26 Blockbuster Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"Iowa is a very unique circuit. It is different because it is a short oval but you have a superspeedway setup on the car. You really have to put an emphasis on track position because it is very difficult to pass. The Blockbuster team has had a couple of unfortunate incidents the last two weekends but we've been very competitive and I think we'll be strong again this weekend."

Hideki Mutoh, #27 Formula Dream Dallara/Honda/Firestone "I feel a little more comfortable heading to Iowa than I would at a new track since I raced there last year in the Firestone Indy Lights series. I enjoy racing at Iowa and feel that the Formula Dream car will be quick and running up front this weekend."
