·            The No.10 team enters tomorrow’s race as the defending winner at St. Petersburg.
·            TCGR has competed on the Streets of St. Petersburg since 2005 with one win, five top-five and eight top-10 finishes.
·            Both cars advanced to the second round of qualifying but placed just outside the cut-off for the final segment.
 
TCGR Quoteboard
 
Dario Franchitti: “Our setup wasn't where it needed to be obviously. I don't think it’s by accident the Chevy guys were up there. We'll just keep our heads up and get the work done. We still have some tricks up our sleeve."
 
Target Chip Ganassi Racing will compete in the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg at the Streets of St. Petersburg on Sunday, March 25 (12:30 PM ET, ABC).
