Milwaukee: Andretti Green Racing preview

Danica Patrick, ...

Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"I have always liked The Milwaukee Mile. I feel that the Motorola team has worked hard all season to give me a strong car. I'm looking forward to getting back in the car this weekend, especially after last weekend's disappointing finish. I have something to prove this weekend."

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

"I always enjoy driving at Milwaukee. It's one of my favorite tracks, for sure. I've been fortunate that the crew has given me a great Team 7-Eleven car each of the last four years and I think the results certainly back that up. We've had a lot of bad luck this season so hopefully Milwaukee is where we turn it around."

Marco Andretti, #26 Indiana Jones/Blockbuster Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"The Milwaukee Mile is a great place to race. This is our first short oval race of the year and with the addition of several cars, I think it's going to be a very entertaining race. The Indiana Jones/Blockbuster team has done a good job collecting points and staying in the championship hunt. There is still a lot of racing left in the season. We've been very close to winning some races and I think we'll be right there this weekend."

Hideki Mutoh, #27 Formula Dream Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"First of all, I cannot believe the next race is coming up this weekend. I had a great month of May and enjoyed racing with 32 other drivers very much. I am also happy that we are getting back to the usual three-day race weekend cycle. I raced at The Milwaukee Mile last year in the Firestone Indy Lights Series but I got into an accident and I couldn't finish the race so I hope I get to finish the race this time. I like short tracks so I will do my best to learn the track as fast as possible and try to move up as many positions as possible in the race."

Raphael Matos, #27 AFS/AGR Dallara/Firestone

"Milwaukee is a tough place. The AFS/AGR car was quick in the test and I think we now have a better understanding of what we need to do with the car. I think it is very important to qualify well at Milwaukee in order to have a good shot at winning."

Arie Luyendyk, Jr., #26 Targus/AGR/AFS Dallara/Firestone

"Indy wasn't what we had expected. But, the Targus/AGR/AFS team and I are working really hard to find out what went wrong. The test we had at Milwaukee a few weeks ago went well and feel that this weekend should be much better for us. Milwaukee is a special place for me, so a win would mean even more to me. Hopefully we can get our new sponsor, Targus, a much better finish this weekend and end up in victory lane."
