IRL: Milwaukee: Andretti Green Racing race report

Danica Patrick, ...

Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone

(ON THE INCIDENT WITH WHELDON) "Going into the corner I heard "three wide." I held my line on the way in, which is what you have to do, and Dan turned down into me. He spun me sideways and luckily I caught it and kept going. It made for a tough day. I think we had a car that could contend for the win. It was frustrating to have a good car and not have it materialize into a better finish. When you have a good car, you just really want to make the most of it."

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

"The Team 7-Eleven car was the best car all weekend. My boys gave me a great car and we didn't give up all day. We had to work hard to get to the front but it paid off. This was a great '1-2' finish again. Dario (Franchitti) is leading the championship but I'm going to do my best to catch him. This will be an exciting summer for sure."

Marco Andretti, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"I'm incredibly disappointed for the NYSE team. We had a decent race going today and I got into the marbles and just lost the car. We made a few changes near the end of the race that made the NYSE car much better and I think we would have had a solid finish today."

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

"We had too much understeer to start in the Canadian Club car. We expected a slower pace for the race with more stop and start. It was hard to get positions on the restart with the heavy traffic, but when we got caught back up, my car was very good. It was very quick on its own and we worked very hard at each stop to make it better. By the end, the car was quite good. To finish second to Tony (Kanaan) is great. He drove a fantastic race to come back from where he did and I am really proud of the team to get a '1-2' today."
