TCGR Quoteboard
 
Dario Franchitti:  "Obviously it is the luck of the draw with which group you get, so we are happy to get through that first segment there, it was pretty tough.  It is difficult here with as bumpy as the place here, and that with this chicane that you can gain three or four tenths by just what you do there.  It made it pretty daunting to put a lap together, tough to put a lap together.  That was part of the challenge."
 
Target Chip Ganassi Racing will compete in the Grand Prix of Baltimore in Baltimore, Maryland, on Sunday, September 2 (2:30pm ET on NBC Sports Network).
