IRL: Andretti Green Racing Daytona test wrap-up

Danica Patrick, #7 Team Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"It's been a tough couple days, for sure. It's just all part of the learning process. We're taking a new team's car and learning what we need to get it right."

Dario Franchitti, #27 Canadian Club Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"The Canadian Club guys had a decent test plan and we made some good progress yesterday. Today, I think we took a little bit of a step backwards, but that is part of what you deal with when you're testing."

Marco Andretti, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"Any time I'm in the car, I obviously want to be at the top, so the first few sessions were a little bit frustrating for us. But, in the last session, I felt like we found the balance of the NYSE car. The engineers and guys on the crew did a good job taking the feedback and making the car better. This was a fun test and a good way for us to start the season."

Tony Kanaan, #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"I think we did some positive things during the test to the Team 7-Eleven car. We seemed to go back a step in the last session today but I think we learned some things and that's what we were here to do. It felt good to finish at the top yesterday and to post the overall top speed during the test. I'm really happy for the guys on the Team 7-Eleven crew and the rest of the team. We've made up some ground and have to keep working to get better."
