TCGR Quoteboard
 
Dario Franchitti:  "We didn't really have the session we wanted.  We kept getting behind Ed Carpenter and even on his slower laps he was getting in our way.  I think if you're going that slow you should be looking in your mirrors.  It's tough to find a gap as it is but that just ruined our session.  We have a good Suave car and the guys made some great changes this morning so I hope we get to show it tomorrow."
 
Target Chip Ganassi Racing will compete in the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix on Sunday, June 3 (3:30pm ET on ABC).
