TCGR Quoteboard
 
Dario Franchitti:  “Lack of balance overall really is what we dealt with.  Lack of track time too and we haven't been great so far.  It didn't help that the second qualifying group was stout and there was a lot of competition there.  Not where we want to be but we'll go back and work on it.”
 
Target Chip Ganassi Racing will compete in the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama at Barber Motorsports Park on Sunday, April 1 (2:00 PM ET, NBC Sports Network).
