TCGR Quoteboard
 
Dario Franchitti:  “Scott and I are the first two of the Honda-powered cars right now and I think we have some work to do.  That’s it really, it can’t be roses every day and you just need to keep pushing.  We have some work to do and the Target guys are working very hard on this with the Honda guys to come up with something before tomorrow.  Whatever happens we’ll do our best and that is all we can do.”
 
Target Chip Ganassi Racing will compete in the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday, May 27 (12:00 pm ET on ABC).
