IZOD INDYCAR SERIES
NOTES AND QUOTES, PRE-RACE
HONDA INDY 200
MARCO ANDRETTI, #26 TEAM VENOM ENERGY DRINK CAR (ANDRETTI AUTOSPORT)
"I'm optimistic for Mid-Ohio this weekend. I think the Venom car and the team as a whole had a strong test last week. We're looking for a breakthrough weekend and I think we're capable of it."
ADAM CARROLL, #27 TEAM AUTOMATIC FIRE SPRINKLERS CAR (AFS RACING /ANDRETTI AUTOSPORT)
"I'm really looking forward to racing this weekend. It'll be good to go back to a circuit I know, after testing at Mid-Ohio. I hope I can get up to speed earlier this time and just build on the whole weekend. I would like to thank Automatic Fire Sprinklers, AFS Racing and Andretti Autosport for this opportunity to race. I expect it to be a tough and physical race, but hopefully I can come out with a good result."
RYAN HUNTER-REAY, #37 TEAM IZOD CAR (ANDRETTI AUTOSPORT)
"I'm really looking forward to heading back to the track I feel is the heart of road racing in America, Mid-Ohio. I've had some breakthrough races at this track over the years beginning with Skip Barber as a teenager. I really enjoy it. I'm pretty optimistic about the upcoming weekend. We need to push to bring the Team IZOD car closer to the top three in the championship. As a team we are working very well together and we hope to keep our momentum moving in the right direction."
TONY KANAAN, #11 TEAM 7-ELEVEN CAR (ANDRETTI AUTOSPORT)
"It was great to have a chance to test the 7-Eleven car at Mid-Ohio last week, so close to the race weekend. We don't get many opportunities to test as it is, and especially not this close to when it really counts. Now, we have to take what we learned and make it work for us. Most of us have a lot of laps and a lot of experience at Mid-Ohio, so no one is going to be fooled there. To be successful, you're going to have to earn it, for sure."
DANICA PATRICK, #7 TEAM GoDaddy.com CAR (ANDRETTI AUTOSPORT)
"We tested the GoDaddy car at Mid-Ohio last week and the test pretty well. I feel like we were able to get some good data that we can use throughout this weekend. Your starting position is so important at a place like Mid-Ohio, so hopefully we can get off to a good start on Friday and keep it going through the weekend."
