MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin (May 31, 2009) - Andretti Green Racing drivers Danica Patrick, Tony Kanaan, Marco Andretti and Hideki Mutoh completed the fifth race of the 2009 IndyCar Series season, the ABC Supply Co./A.J. Foyt Indy 225, at the Milwaukee Mile.

Driver:  Danica Patrick

Car: #7 Boost Mobile/Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone

Danica Patrick: Started 7th, finished 5th

"It was a great result for the #7 car. I was hoping we were going to be able to get by Graham (Rahal) at the end, but just couldn't get it done. I had a strong car all weekend so I'm happy with the top-five finish. We have been really consistent so far this year, and that's what important when you are working towards the championship. I'm looking forward to Texas and hope to keep the momentum going."

Driver:  Tony Kanaan

Car: #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone

Tony Kanaan: Started 3rd, finished 19th

"It was a tough day for the #11 team. We hard such a strong car so I was confident that we would have a strong finish. We don't know what happened to the car, but it caught fire, so we need to do some research on that situation. It was a hard month and I was hoping we would bounce back with a great race here, but unfortunately that's not the case. The 7-Eleven team has worked so hard getting the car put back together from the wreck in Indy and now they have to get the car turned back around for next week's race in Texas. Hopefully we will have a great result next week to show-off their efforts."

Driver:  Marco Andretti

Car: #26 Team Venom Energy Dallara/Honda/Firestone

Marco Andretti: Started 13th, finished 7th

"The #26 car was strong today and it's a shame we weren't able to show it with a higher finish. We got caught up in some traffic near the end and were boxed in. I definitely think we were capable of a top-five finish. The Venom boys did a great job all day and I'm looking forward to Texas next weekend."

Driver:  Hideki Mutoh

Car: #27 Formula Dream Dallara/Honda/Firestone

Hideki Mutoh: Started 6th, finished 8th

"It's a good result for the Formula Dream crew and we scored some points for the championship. The car felt good and everyone is working really hard, it's just that we need some luck on the track and in the pits. I'm excited for Texas and hope we have a great race next weekend."
