Andretti to Start 11th in NYSE Car at Kansas Speedway

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (July 1, 2006) - Marco Andretti and the #26 NYSE car recorded a speed of 209.884 miles per hour (26.0716 seconds) around Kansas Speedway and will start from the 11th position for Sunday's running of the Kansas Lottery Indy 300. The eighth event of the 2006 IndyCar Series season is set to go green at 1:15 p.m. (EDT) Sunday, July 2, with ABC Sports providing live broadcast coverage of the 200-lap event beginning at 1 p.m. (EDT). The race may also be heard on XM Satellite Radio on XM channel 145.

Marco Andretti, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone:

"The NYSE car is going to be a pretty good race car. It just didn't feel all that fast during qualifying. I was pretty happy with the run. We've mainly been working on the race car and I'm pretty comfortable with it. At this place you can get sidetracked looking for speed and not have a comfortable car during the race."
