IRL: Indy 500: Andretti Green Racing Fast Friday report

Tony Kanaan, ...

Tony Kanaan, #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"We didn't get to run much before the rain came, but we're confident. We shook down the Team 7-Eleven car and everything ran well, which was good. It was a very short day for everybody. Now we'll see what tomorrow brings."

Dario Franchitti, #27 ArcaEx Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"It was really warm and humid today and we don't think this will be very representative of the conditions we'll have tomorrow for qualifying. We'll look to go back to what we learned yesterday, make an engine change and hopefully the ArcaEx car will be strong for qualifying. It would have been nice to have had another couple of runs before the rain came."

Bryan Herta, #7 XM Satellite Radio Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"We didn't get everything accomplished today that we would have liked in the XM Satellite Radio car. We did get one full run and another half run in today before the rain came. I think we're a little better off today because we made some improvements, but we've still got some work to do for tomorrow."

Dan Wheldon, #26 Klein Tools/Jim Beam Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"We had a very strange day today. The Klein Tools/Jim Beam car has been pretty quick all week and when we went out today, we couldn't get out of our own way. We were running pretty slow. I'm not sure exactly why that is and we're certainly going to be looking into that and see if we can run for the pole tomorrow."
