Marco Andretti, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone: "I'm fairly satisfied with my qualifying run. It really doesn't matter where you qualify on the big ovals, we just need to find a decent balance for the NYSE car and get it right for tomorrow's warmup session. Then we can work towards the race itself."
