Watkins Glen: Andretti Autosport Friday report

MARCO ANDRETTI, ...

MARCO ANDRETTI, #26 TEAM VENOM ENERGY DRINK CAR (ANDRETTI AUTOSPORT)

"We had some mechanical issues today with the Venom car so we only got one true run in, but that considered we don't have a bad base line car. I think as a team we have some work to do; we're a bit off pace."

ADAM CARROLL, #27 TEAM BOOST MOBILE CAR (AFS RACING/ANDRETTI AUTOSPORT)

"It is my first time here at Watkins Glen. It's a beautiful circuit and reminds me of Spa-Francorchamps in Europe. It's actually a very difficult circuit, but very enjoyable. Generally I didn't push too hard this session. I just went out early to learn the circuit and try to get up to speed. I know what I need to do with the #27 Boost Mobile car, and hopefully we can do well in qualifying tomorrow."

RYAN HUNTER-REAY, #37 TEAM IZOD CAR (ANDRETTI AUTOSPORT)

"We had a session where we just never really got in sequence. We had lots of traffic and interrupted runs from yellows. We only really did one good run. Then, we had to stop early because of a little issue we were concerned about and missed the last 10 minutes when we needed to be on track. Today is definitely not indicative of where we are with the IZOD car, but it's also hard to go to sleep after a session like that. We'll come out tomorrow and be quick, but we would have liked to have gotten more out of this session. We just never got into a rhythm."

TONY KANAAN, #11 TEAM 7-ELEVEN CAR (ANDRETTI AUTOSPORT)

"The session was not as clear as I wanted it to be, so we're going to have to try something different tomorrow with the 7-Eleven car. I'm definitely not as happy as I was hoping to be, but this is only Friday."

DANICA PATRICK, #7 TEAM GoDaddy.com CAR (ANDRETTI AUTOSPORT)

"I'm having some understeer issues throughout the course, but I think we know what we need to do to get the GoDaddy car up to speed. We'll fine-tune some things tonight and should be on course for tomorrow's practice."
