Andretti to Start From Ninth Row in NYSE Car at Nashville

LEBANON, Tenn. (July 14, 2006) - Marco Andretti and the #26 NYSE car recorded a speed of 198.311 miles per hour (23.5993 seconds) around the 1.33-mile Nashville Superspeedway and will start from the 18th position for Saturday night's running of the Firestone Indy 200. The ninth event of the 2006 IndyCar Series season is set to go green at 9:15 p.m. (EDT) Saturday, July 15, with ESPN providing live broadcast coverage of the 200-lap event beginning at 9 p.m. (EDT). The race may also be heard on XM Satellite Radio on XM channel 145.

Marco Andretti, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone:

"I really don't know why the NYSE car wasn't any faster. We were pretty quick during this morning's practice session but for some reason that didn't carry over. We'll go back and look at the data, see what we can learn and get ready for tomorrow night's race."
