IRL: Sears Point: Andretti Green Racing Friday report

Tony Kanaan, ...

Tony Kanaan, #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"We're just working towards qualifying and trying to find the best setup for the Team 7-Eleven car. We had a couple of issues; I spun twice, so I'm not very happy with the setup I have right now. We finished third fastest on the day, so it doesn't look that bad."

Bryan Herta, #7 XM Satellite Radio Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"There are still some issues that we're trying to resolve on the track, but the XM Satellite Radio car was pretty good today. We made a couple of improvements today and we've got some ideas to try over night, so it was a good first day."

Dan Wheldon, #26 Klein Tools/Jim Beam Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"The Klein Tools/Jim Beam car wasn't too bad today. With my limited time on a road course in an IndyCar, I'm still trying to perfect the setup that I'm comfortable with. To tell you the truth, we haven't quite gotten there yet. The car definitely has a reasonable overall balance, but we're just working on trying to find some more outright speed."

Dario Franchitti, #27 ArcaEx Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"We really struggled this morning, but we made headway with the ArcaEx car this afternoon. By the end of the day I was happy with the car and happy with the way I was driving, but we've still got some work to do before we qualify."
