IRL: Iowa: Andretti Green Racing preview

Danica Patrick, ...

Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"Having never raced or even tested at Iowa, I don't know a lot about it myself. But, a few drivers have tested there and from what they've said, I know it is going to be fast and a very physically-demanding race. The test on Friday is going to be very important for all of us to find out right away what we need to be fast around there. It's going to be a tough weekend, but hopefully the Motorola team can keep building on the momentum we've picked up the past few races."

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

"I've been to Iowa testing and I love the place. I think it's going to be an exciting race for the 7-Eleven team and I can't wait to go there. It's in the middle of nowhere with corn all around but they sure got it right. It's a fun race track. With the nature of the track and type of racing our cars are capable of producing, it will be an exciting race and people will have a blast."

Marco Andretti, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"I'm excited to be going to a new track, especially one that sounds like a driver's track that's pretty physical with constant turning. The NYSE team had some success on similar tracks last year like Nashville and Richmond. If we can avoid mistakes and bad luck, we'll be alright."

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

"After the weekend off, I am looking forward to heading to Iowa. I always enjoy going to new tracks. Iowa is a track similar to Pikes Peak and Richmond, which are both tracks that I enjoy, so it should be an exciting weekend. We are heading into a stretch of five consecutive races so it will be important to get off to a good start in order for us to fight for the championship."

Jaime Camara, #11 oso*fresh Dallara/Firestone

"Iowa is going to be an exciting race. With our test there, we learned that there will be a lot of side-by-side racing which will be great for the fans to see. We are coming off of two top-five finishes in the oso*fresh car and hopefully we'll be able to build on the momentum we gained last weekend."
