Mid-Ohio: Andretti Green Racing race report

Danica Patrick, ...

Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"Kyle (Moyer) made a great call this afternoon. We thought the yellow was going to come out after Graham (Rahal) spun so Kyle said to pit. Unfortunately, the yellow did not come out, it stayed green. I had to conserve fuel the last stint of the race, but I was able to gain some positions and get some points."

Tony Kanaan, #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"It was not a good race for this team. We need to regroup because we're definitely not doing a good job right now. We've got to keep our heads and work through our issues to get better."

Marco Andretti, #26 Blockbuster Dallara/Honda/Firestone "There was just a
lot of smoke in front of me and I knew someone was spinning. I had no idea which direction they were going and unfortunately the Blockbuster car got caught up in it. Obviously I'm the one who put myself in that position to begin with because of my mistake earlier in the race. The track went loose and it kept picking up front grip so no matter how many turns of front wing we took out, we were still loose. It's just a disappointment."

Hideki Mutoh, #27 Formula Dream Dallara/Honda/Firestone "The Formula
Dream car was good at the beginning of the race. In fact, I think we had one of the fastest cars in the first stint. But, the last stint we developed too much of an understeer condition and we just couldn't pass anyone. Our strategy for the race did not work out the way we needed. It was a tough day. I hope we can have a better result next week."
