IRL: Homestead: Andretti Green Racing qualifying report

Danica Patrick, ...

Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone:

(ON QUALIFYING) "The Motorola car felt good. It was stuck the whole way around. It just didn't go very fast. I don't know what the problem is. It felt better than it felt all day, so I don't have an answer. I drove exactly where I wanted to drive. I took it around the bottom. I made sure that the car was still rolling free. I really couldn't have done much else."

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

(ON QUALIFYING) "I'm surprised. I'm not surprised at the speed. I'm surprised because we didn't even do a qualifying run today; we just concentrated on race set up. Thanks to my engineers and the Canadian Club team because they did a really good job and they could have guessed a little bit and it seems to be okay. Now, it would be ideal to test this time of night similar to what we race because the track really does seem to change so much. We'll just see what we've got for tomorrow night."

Marco Andretti, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone:

(ON QUALIFYING) "We weren't particularly quick during the day but we didn't want to get ahead of ourselves and make crazy changes. Fortunately the NYSE car came back to us. This was the same setup we used during the test and we were definitely rolling the dice. We might as well have just rolled the car off the truck before qualifying because we didn't change much from the open test."

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

(ON QUALIFYING) "Obviously I would like to be higher but this is a big step from last year. I think Team 7-Eleven worked so hard during the off-season and I've got to thank my crew, my engineers and Tino Belli, our engineer who wasn't able to make it here this weekend. Dan (Wheldon) and Sam (Hornish) are going to be strong but I feel good. I think I can pass three cars on the start. I've done it before."
