IRL: Indy 500: Tony Kanaan day four summary

Tony Kanaan, ...

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

"I've got a good car in my hands. But I also got a good draft on that fast lap, so I don't want anybody to be fooled. I'm just happy because I'm starting to like the way the Team 7-Eleven car feels. But, today is not the important day. I can love my car today and hate it tomorrow. That is what this place can do to you. We'll get back to it tomorrow, be patient and just think about what changes we want to make as we get closer to Saturday."

"We're just continuing to work toward Saturday with the Team 7-Eleven car. We just need to optimize the car for qualifying. I think we definitely made some gains. It's just one step at a time. We're to a point now where we're just carefully clicking through the test items to try to get ourselves the best chance at pole position."
