TCGR Quoteboard
 
Dario Franchitti:  “We got everything we could out of the GE car.  I thought I did a good lap.  Good enough obviously.  We beat Will’s time there.  That’s the sixth front row start in a row so hopefully we can turn it into a result tomorrow.  Qualifying has been the relatively easy part so hopefully we can have a good race tomorrow.”
 
Target Chip Ganassi Racing will compete in the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio on Sunday, August 5 (1:00pm ET on ABC).
