IRL: Michigan: Andretti Green Racing preview

Danica Patrick, ...

Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"Michigan will be wide open, for sure. It's great racing for the fans because we will probably be side-by-side and inches apart all day long, but it's pretty nerve-wracking for the drivers. We just need to keep doing what we've been doing all summer and put together another good weekend."

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

"I enjoy Michigan a lot and will always have fond memories of the track. It's where I got my first IndyCar win (in 1999) and I started on the pole there in 2004. Right now, we've got to focus on getting the 7-Eleven car back into victory lane. We're capable of winning any of the final races so if we can do that, we'll get ourselves closer to Dario (Franchitti) and Scott (Dixon) in the championship."

Marco Andretti, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"We've had good cars on our last three ovals so the NYSE team is definitely looking forward to racing at Michigan. We've still got several chances to win a race this season and Michigan is a place where we can certainly do that. We're going to do what we can to be competitive and still help Dario (Franchitti) and Tony (Kanaan) in the championship."

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

"After the week off, I am looking forward to getting back to the track. Michigan is a track that I have a good amount of experience on. We have been very consistent over the past three races, but it is really important for us to get the Canadian Club car back into victory lane."
