IPS: IRL: Iowa: Andretti Green Racing Saturday report

Danica Patrick, ...

Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"We're flat out on the bottom (of the track), so it is a matter of getting the car freed up while still being able to hang on to it. We had a little bit of scrub on the exits with the Motorola car, so we weren't quite as fast as we could have been. I've been finishing better than I've been qualifying, so hopefully that trend continues tomorrow. We want to keep running well for Motorola and all of our sponsors, but we've got a big group from Go Daddy here to watch us tomorrow, so we want to put on a good show for them, too."

Tony Kanaan, #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"There was definitely more grip on the race track for qualifying. We were a lot slower than I expected to be. I'm not very happy with our qualifying run but what can you do. It will be very difficult to pass here tomorrow but we'll make the best of it in the 7-Eleven car."

Marco Andretti, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"It isn't exactly the time I was expecting. I thought there was a little more in the NYSE car but we missed a bit in the setup and had a little to much understeer. It's not a big deal, though. It would be nice to start toward the front because it's going to be tough to pass but I've got confidence that the crew will do a great job tomorrow and we'll be ready for the race."

Dario Franchitti, #27 Canadian Club Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"Overall it was a good day for the Canadian Club team. When you look at the qualifying results, we are four hundredths off of the pole speed. You always think you can do better maybe with a more aggressive set up. I think we did a good job. I think we have a good race car. Conditions are going to change a lot tomorrow, but hopefully we've got what we need to win."

Jaime Camara, #11 oso*fresh Dallara/Firestone

"I was trying to pass (Jonathan) Klein and I got pushed up the racetrack and into the wall. It broke the wishbone so we had to park the car. It is disappointing because the oso*fresh car was really quick. I had a top three car for sure."
