IRL: Indy 500: Andretti Green Racing day five report

Danica Patrick, ...

Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone "I'm not going to say that we're doing '226s' out there on our own. But, at least the Motorola car will pull that time. I still believe we have work to do for sure. The car is not 100 percent comfortable and I don't think it is the fastest car yet, by any means. But, I think we are hopefully around the top five right now, and from there, anything can happen."

Tony Kanaan, #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone "It was not a very good day for us. As a team we did a good job but it's frustrating because we don't have the speed right now. We need to figure out what we need to do to make the Team 7-Eleven car faster for qualifying."

Marco Andretti, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone "Very few people at the top today were true to themselves. I was one of them. There were a bunch of tows out there and I just couldn't be true to myself at the end. There were a couple of guys out there that ran by themselves and looked good. Two of them were my teammates with Tony (Kanaan) and Dario (Franchitti), so that is good for the team. We will just take from them for the NYSE car and finish preparing tomorrow for qualifying on Saturday."

Dario Franchitti, #27 Canadian Club Dallara/Honda/Firestone "This is by far the best the car has been all week. We are really getting close now. There were a bunch of people there at the end that were running around together with big tows and we didn't participate in that. We are really working towards Saturday and running on our own. I am very happy with the progress we've made with the Canadian Club car."

Michael Andretti, #39 Motorola/Jim Beam Dallara/Honda/Firestone "I don't know what to say right now. It's just frustrating. We've got to find some speed tomorrow and get the car to drive the way we need it to. We'll just have to keep working."
