IndyCar - Andretti Autosports Post-Carb Day Driver Comments
JOHN ANDRETTI, #43 TEAM WINDOW WORLD CAR
* Finished practice in P10 with a speed of 223.852 mph
"We were really happy with the Window World car today. The guys had it in pieces at the shop just a few days ago getting it prepped for this weekend, and today when I got in, it was just as comfortable as before. They've done a great job and today we feel confident with our practice. I'm looking forward to getting out on track again on Sunday for the big show."
MARCO ANDRETTI, #26 TEAM VENOM ENERGY DRINK CAR
* Ended practice in P29 with a speed of 221.826 mph
"The Venom car was very comfortable today, but I'd still like a more speed. We're still just a bit too slow. But 500 miles is a long time and a lot can happen - we'll do whatever we can to work our way to the front on Sunday."
RYAN HUNTER-REAY, #41 ABC SUPPLY/DHL/SUN DROP CITRUS SODA CAR
* Finished Carb Day practice in P7 with a speed of 223.930 mph
"It felt really good. Both teams did a great job preparing it. I went out, was flat right away, running in traffic, was happy with it and am the highest (on the speed chart) we've been all month. It's not the way we wanted to do it. This isn't the way we wanted to get here. I wish Bruno was here today, but that's not the case and we've got to get on with the job.
"The guys did a great job - both the Foyt and Andretti guys - did a great job. To get me in a car I've never driven and for it to run like that is just excellent work by both teams. Thanks to the boys on the crew."
DANICA PATRICK, #7 TEAM GoDaddy.com CAR
* Ended the practice session in P20 with a speed of 222.829 mph
"I really feel like the practice hour was good for the GoDaddy car. I wish we could have got some more laps in, but I was happy. I think it was a productive session. I feel confident in myself and the crew to have a strong finish on race day."
