IRL: Milwaukee: Andretti Green Racing qualifying report

Danica Patrick, ...

Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"There was just absolutely no grip. I couldn't lean on any one corner of the car, and when you don't have any grip, you don't have any speed. We'll have to see what we can figure out for tomorrow."

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

"I'm not on the pole so I'm not very happy. We came here expecting to start on the pole and I'm not at all happy with our qualifying result. Third is not bad but when you expect to start first, you are disappointed with anything but the pole. The 7-Eleven car is a very good race car so hopefully we'll be better tomorrow when it counts."

Marco Andretti, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"There must be an electronic problem with the race car. I had one lap and it really wasn't fun. It was hard to sit there and wait because I didn't know if we would have enough time to get a qualifying attempt and when we did, we only had one lap, so it was challenging. I know a good car will bring you to the front at this place but track position really helps. What is unfortunate is that I think the NYSE car would have been right in the mix."

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

"I am very disappointed in the qualifying performance. This morning went very well. We were quickest in the morning session. We had some electrical issues that stopped us from running most of the second session. We missed about half of it. So, we had to guess on the qualifying set up and we guessed wrong. We had too much push in the car and ended up 10th. Hopefully the Canadian Club car will be better for the race."
