IndyCar - Andretti Autosports Qualifying Comments
MARCO ANDRETTI, #26 TEAM DR PEPPER CAR
Will start the race in P20
"I'm obviously disappointed with the qualifying results for the No. 26 car. I'm really struggling to find the back end of the car on entry that works for me. We'll work on it tonight and the race is a different story - a lot can happen here in 85 laps. Hopefully the Dr Pepper guys can pull some magic for me in the pits and we can work our way up in the field."
MIKE CONWAY, #27 TEAM @FOLLOWANDRETTI CAR
Starts tomorrow's race in P4
"You always try to challenge on the exit of turn eight to get a final bit of speed, but I got a little too close. Luckily nothing was bent. You always look for that edge to try to get in there, so it was a close one. Apart from that, it's been a good day. Yesterday was tough for me. We worked hard last night to come into this morning strong. To be in the Firestone Fast Six, I'm pretty happy with that. Thanks to the Team @FollowAndretti guys for their good work."
RYAN HUNTER-REAY, #28 TEAM DHL/CIRCLE K/SUN DROP CITRUS SODA CAR
Will start the race in P8
"It's disappointing really. The DHL/Circle K/Sun Drop car has been awesome this weekend. We threw a change at it there, and I just couldn't get a lap together. It was a mixture of things. This track is hard to put together with all the bumps. From eighth, we can work from there, and that's what we'll do. I'm looking to get the team a great result this weekend."
DANICA PATRICK, #7 TEAM GoDaddy.com CAR
Starts the race in P21
"The GoDaddy car felt OK, so I'm a little surprised by our speed. But as we saw last year, you can still put together a decent race if you stay out of trouble and stay patient."
