TCGR Quoteboard
 
Dario Franchitti:  “It was fairly interesting, just dealing with the track drying in the second session.  The first session it just started to rain a little bit.  That third session, the big decision was go with new reds, or go with scrubs, so we decided to go with scrubs and I was just really trying to put a lap together there.  I think we got within a hundredth or something, but didn’t quite manage to put the lap together.  It’s good that we start in the front row, the Target car is good again this weekend.  It’d be nice to have a decent race because we’ve had some good qualifying performances but in the races we haven’t had any luck.”
 
Target Chip Ganassi Racing will compete in the Edmonton Indy, in Edmonton, Alberta, on Sunday, July 22 (2:45pm ET on NBC Sports Network).
