Marco Andretti on the Meijer Indy 300:

"We've made progress with the NYSE car on the superspeedways and while I've not had the opportunity to test at Kentucky Speedway, the team (AGR) has. We'll need to use the information we got from that test and do everything we can to put a competitive car on the track. We're moving up in points so it would be nice to have a strong run and get closer to the top of the standings."

Marco Andretti Facts
The Meijer Indy 300 will represent Andretti's 12th career IndyCar Series start.

Eddie Jones, Race Engineer, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone, on the Meijer Indy 300:

"Kentucky is a 1.5-mile oval that has real similarities to Kansas and Nashville. Even though Marco hasn't tested at Kentucky, the experience he gained at those two tracks, plus Michigan, should pay off for us. We are confident that we have a good setup for Kentucky. Provided we give him a good car we should really be competitive this weekend."
