IRL: Indy 500: Andretti Green Racing Third-Day Qualifying report

Danica Patrick, ...

Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"Today was another 'OK' day. I think we're just missing a little bit somewhere. The Motorola car doesn't feel too bad, so I'm a little concerned as to why we're not in the mix more. If I had answers, I wouldn't be talking about it, so we'll have to work hard tonight and figure it out."

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

"I think we had another good day in the Team 7-Eleven car. The car has been behaving so far. We made a few small changes today and had the opportunity to run in traffic a lot. We're trying to get enough data to evaluate what is going to happen under each different weather condition so that we're ready for the race next Sunday."

Marco Andretti, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"The NYSE car is pretty good in traffic. I think running tomorrow will be worthwhile. We know that tomorrow could be unrepresentative of the race because of weather conditions but you can always make your car better. We have tires; we have laps and the NYSE car will be here tomorrow."

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

"We stayed out on pit lane all day. We were trying to improve our car from yesterday and sometimes it happens that we make it worse. We'll go back to the drawing board now. Some of my teammates found some good stuff that worked. We unfortunately didn't have anything to contribute in a positive way but we could tell them what not to do. Now, we'll roll on tomorrow with the Canadian Club car."

Michael Andretti, #39 Motorola/Jim Beam Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"I feel better about where we are with the Motorola/Jim Beam car after today. We've still got some things we can work on, but I think we've got a race car that can be competitive."
