IPS: IRL: Nashville: Andretti Green Racing race report

Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"I thought we had a pretty decent car today. We got it dialed in for the last stint pretty well. I just had a lot of understeer in traffic and that makes it difficult, especially with how much I was dealing with lapped traffic. It was just unfortunate that there was zero cooperation from lapped traffic today. But, it means a lot to get a third-place finish at a place like this where you really have to drive the car. The Motorola car was good and my guys got me up there at the end, so I owe a lot to them, too."

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

"I tried to go around Sarah on the outside and I just lost it. The track was still very green because of the rain last night. It's really a tough break because the Team 7-Eleven car was so good. This really hurts us in the championship for sure. It's a shame and I'm very disappointed right now. The crew gave me such a good car all weekend. We've had a lot of accidents the last few weeks so it's time to regroup and move forward."

Marco Andretti, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"These are the kinds of finishes the NYSE team needs the rest of the year. I think we had a better car than where we finished but track position is everything here. Each time we came up behind somebody, it never seemed to go our way. If you want to keep somebody behind you at this track, you're certainly able to and that's what happened. We seemed to get caught up behind cars three laps down and they just kept blocking us and it was frustrating. We just have to make the NYSE car better in traffic next time. We'll take the finish. It's not bad."

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

"The Canadian Club car had a good start and got by Scott (Dixon) right away. We were happy up front there. Then we had lapped traffic three-wide in front of us. And that was it. Scott got a good run on us and passed us. From then on, we were struggling to get back up to him. We just got screwed in traffic all day. We'll just have to see what happens next week."

Jaime Camara, #11 oso*fresh Dallara/Firestone

"I am really happy with the job the oso*fresh team did today. We made some progress this weekend that I really hope can carry over to Mid-Ohio. The car felt very good today and I am happy to come away with a top-three finish."
