Dario Franchitti on the Meijer Indy 300:

"We've struggled all season to find the speed we need on the big ovals. Hopefully, the Klein Tools/Canadian Club team will be able to put it together at Kentucky and we can challenge for the win. The crowd at Kentucky is always solid and with all the drivers battling for better positions in the championship, I think this will be an exciting race for the fans."

Dario Franchitti Facts

Franchitti has two starts at Kentucky Speedway. His best result was sixth in 2004.

John Anderson, Team Manager, #27 Klein Tools/Canadian Club Dallara/Honda/Firestone on the Meijer Indy 300:

"It has been a disappointing season for us, but it's been a year where we've continued to make strides. We've tried different things, we've gone in different directions and sometimes maybe not far enough. The Klein Tools/Canadian Club team is gradually getting back to where we were last year and the year before and it's very difficult. The teams ahead of us have spent the last two years getting beat, so now we've got our work cut out for us. It's just going to take a little more work. We have four sets of smart engineers who have tried everything and have made a lot of progress."
