Richmond: Andretti Green Racing preview

Danica Patrick, ...

Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"I feel more confident this year going into Richmond than ever. We tested there last week and I believe the test was a success. I hope that we are able to build on that momentum and have a strong finish. Richmond is a very demanding track, but I think the Motorola car will do well."

Tony Kanaan, #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"I think Richmond is going to be a mad traffic jam. With the addition of six or eight cars, I think it is going to be the most stressful race we are going to have this year. The Team 7-Eleven guys continue to give me great race cars and we had the car to beat in Iowa. We just need to break through and get our first win."

Marco Andretti, #26 Blockbuster Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"Richmond is a very daunting track, especially the first time you drive there. Last year it was a one-groove track because of all the marbles but I think it will be different this year. We're in the stretch of the season where it's really important to score points and I think the Blockbuster team is looking forward to the race."

Hideki Mutoh, #27 Formula Dream Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"I tested at Richmond International Raceway a few weeks ago, but this will be my first race there. With it being a 3/4-mile short oval and a night race, I think it will be a very exciting race. I was able to do well last weekend in Iowa, so I hope we will be able to keep this momentum going into this weekend."
