IRL: Indy 500: Andretti Green Racing day ten notes

Tony Kanaan, ...

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

"Today was a confusing day for Team 7-Eleven. We found one good thing today and if you can do that you are heading in the right direction. The #11 Team-7 Eleven car is good but I think we're still missing that one thing that is keeping it from being a great race car. The rain didn't help but that's the way it goes."

Bryan Herta, #7 XM Satellite Radio Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"I went out today and got a read on our starting car but felt like it wasn't quite as good as it was yesterday. So, we ran back to the garage to put yesterday's setup back on. The XM Satellite Radio guys did a great job because they were under the gun on time and we got back out with what would have been 45 minutes of green (flag) time left, then Thiago (Medeiros) had his accident and the rain came so we never got to go out and evaluate it. Our game plan for tomorrow is to run all day and get our miles in. We've got a lot of ideas and things we want to try and evaluate. We just need track time now to do it."

Dario Franchitti, #27 Klein Tools/Canadian Club Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"We learned some stuff at the end there, we were making progress in a direction, and then the rain came. At least we're getting somewhere now. It was very difficult conditions with the wind, but we're closing in on a race setup for the Klein Tools/Canadian Club car. We'll see what tomorrow brings."

Michael Andretti, #1 Jim Beam/Vonage Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"We were struggling at the beginning and then we started to make some good gains with the Jim Beam/Vonage car, and then the rain came. It's really disappointing because there were a couple of things I wanted to try. We'll just have to do it tomorrow. We're starting to get a little bit of an idea what we need for our race program."

Marco Andretti, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"We are still looking to find a good comfortable balance to the #26 NYSE car. Today's weather conditions didn't help and they weren't really indicative of what we expect to see on Saturday."
