IRL: Richmond: Andretti Green Racing Friday notes

Danica Patrick, ...

Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"We knew there was a good chance it would rain at some point today, so I'm just glad we got all of our practice sessions in before it came. We worked really hard on the Motorola car and made pretty big improvements to it despite fighting through a couple different problems during the day. We'll talk about it some more before tomorrow night and see how much better we can make it."

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

"If you look at the practice times from the last session, I was first. I think we had a good car; a car that was capable of qualifying in the first two rows, but we'll take this for sure. Dario and I both have pretty good race cars but we were not as happy as our teammates so we were definitely happy to see the rain come. We've still got some work to do on the Team 7-Eleven race car so our starting position is really going to help, even though you can go backward pretty quickly here if your car isn't very good."

Marco Andretti, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"I'm really disappointed. The NYSE car unloaded quick and we've stayed there. I don't think we'll have any problems moving to the front because I'm confident in the race car. It's just disappointing that we didn't have a chance to go out and take a shot at the pole. We were easily one of the fastest three cars."

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

"If you look at the practice times from the last session, I was first. I think we had a good car; a car that was capable of qualifying in the first two rows, but we'll take this for sure. Dario and I both have pretty good race cars but we were not as happy as our teammates so we were definitely happy to see the rain come. We've still got some work to do on the Team 7-Eleven race car so our starting position is really going to help, even though you can go backward pretty quickly here if your car isn't very good."
