Long Beach: Andretti Autosport Friday report

MARCO ANDRETTI, ...

MARCO ANDRETTI, #26 TEAM VENOM ENERGY DRINK CAR

* 12th quickest in practice

"I think our initial setup today wasn't the greatest, but we've been able to make some good changes and found some positive results. We have more changes we'd like to try so hopefully we can keep dialing things in until we have the perfect setup. The Venom car definitely has more to give and is stronger than the times show right now. We had some problems getting caught in traffic today and hope to be able to work around that tomorrow."

RYAN HUNTER-REAY, #37 TEAM IZOD

* Fastest in practice today

"It was a pretty good day for the IZOD car. We've been working on the balance of the car, and we found what works and what doesn't work. I think there is still some more speed in the car, so we're pretty happy with it. Tomorrow is going to be quicker and all these guys around us are going to go quicker, so we have to keep on top of the developing racetrack. It's good, though."

TONY KANAAN, #11 TEAM 7-ELEVEN CAR

* 3rd in practice

"It was a good day. It was very productive for Team 7-Eleven. Traffic is a huge issue right now, but I'm very pleased with the car. We've been strong all day. It's so much easier when you come to a racetrack that you like. That's half the battle, really. I'm happy - very happy."

DANICA PATRICK, #7 TEAM GoDaddy.com CAR

* 23rd fastest today

"Today's practice was productive, but there are still many things that need to be improved before qualifying tomorrow. But, we know what we need to do to get the GoDaddy car up to speed." Andretti Autosport sponsors
