TCGR Quoteboard

 
Dario Franchitti:  “That meant a lot.  We had a very fast race car in Barber, but man, we really made a mess of qualifying.  Today it was nice to go out there and really have a great car and get everything out of it.  So, thank you to everyone on the Target team because it’s been a tough start to the season, especially for the No. 10 but really with everybody.”
 
Target Chip Ganassi Racing will compete in the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach in Long Beach, California, on Sunday, April 21(4:00pm ET on NBC Sports Network).
