IRL: Indy 500: Dario Franchitti day two summary

Dario Franchitti, ...

Dario Franchitti, #27 ArcaEx Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"It was a hard day. The weather obviously didn't help with the thunderstorms this afternoon. But, we shook down the primary ArcaEx car and tried a radically different setup on it. We spent a couple runs sorting it out and I think we're getting there. We're getting a handle on it. But, I think it's going to take another couple days to get it right."

Indianapolis marks Franchitti's eighth IndyCar Series start and second start in the Indianapolis 500.

In his only other Indy 500 start (2002), Franchitti qualified 28th and finished 19th.

Franchitti is coming off his first top-10 finish of the season, which came in the form of a seventh at Twin Ring Motegi on April 17.

Kyle Moyer, General Manager, Andretti Green Racing

"We improved the ArcaEx car a little bit today, but we've still got a ways to go. Our lap time at the end of the day was a little misleading because we got quite a tow from Dan (Wheldon). We're just not really where we need to be right now, but this is when it pays to have such great teammates. They'll help get us headed in the right direction."
