TCGR Quoteboard
 
Dario Franchitti:  "I just want to dedicate this to two of Indianapolis' finest, Dan Wheldon and Michael Wanser.  Thanks to all of the Indianapolis fans for their tribute to Dan today.  What a race.  What a race.  I think D-dub (Wheldon) would be proud of that one."
 
Up next, Target Chip Ganassi Racing will compete in the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix on Sunday, June 3 (3:30pm ET on ABC).
