#27 Klein Tools/Jim Beam Dallara/Honda/Firestone driver Dario Franchitti
Dario Franchitti on the Homestead-Miami Indy 300 Presented by XM Satellite Radio:
"It's always important to start the season strongly. I think both Tony (Kanaan) and Dan (Wheldon) have proven that in the past two seasons. I think we had a very fast car last year at Homestead, but unfortunately we had a mechanical failure after 12 laps, so I'm looking for better things this year for the Klein Tools/Jim Beam team."
John Anderson, Team Manager,
#27 Klein Tools/Jim Beam Dallara/Honda/Firestone on the Homestead-Miami Indy 300:
"I'm definitely looking forward to working with Dario this season. There is no doubt that he will be a contender and I would like nothing more than to see him up on the podium accepting Andretti Green Racing's third-consecutive championship and second straight for the Klein Tools/Jim Beam team."
