IRL: Indy 500: Andretti Green Racing day 11 report

Danica Patrick, ...

Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone "Today we were average to not-so-great. It just kind of a mediocre day for us. The car didn't feel that great. It didn't feel like we had the car nailed. We were running with our teammates at the end and it was just uncomfortable. I couldn't keep my foot in it. We'll work on it. But the good news is we have five cars, so we'll figure it out quickly."

Tony Kanaan, #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone "We had a productive day of work today in the Team 7-Eleven car. We turned quite a few laps and definitely learned some things today. There's always work that can be done and we'll get out tomorrow and try some things but I'm happy with where we are right now."

Marco Andretti, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone "We didn't run as much as our teammates did today but we figured out where we stand and that's good. The NYSE car is just about where it needs to be for the race. We'll spend some time tomorrow working in traffic with our teammates and see if we can find a bit more speed."

Dario Franchitti, #27 Canadian Club Dallara/Honda/Firestone "The best way to simulate race conditions is to run with your teammates and with five cars it really helps a lot. We didn't have Michael (Andretti) out there because of some changes being made, but the four cars went out there and ran and even had some other cars join us. I think we got a good feeling for what we are going to need on the Canadian Club car."

Michael Andretti, #39 Motorola/Jim Beam Dallara/Honda/Firestone "We were just working on our race setup like everybody else. We're still fighting a lack of speed, which has been a problem for us all month. We'll keep working on it and see what we can get done tomorrow."
