THE MODERATOR: Given the fact we have four with us, we thought we would get started. Here is four of the drivers who have survived a very long day, obviously a change in conditions. We have heard a lot of stories in the various interviews today about cars that performed as they liked, twists and tails that are always part of a qualification at Indianapolis. We have Tony Kanaan, Marco Andretti, Justin Newgarden and E.J Viso.
Q. Tony, what was the plan for you guys nothing there?
TONY KANAAN: The plan was to put it in the top nine only once, but then we got DQ, and then when we made it to the fast nine, I don't think we had it.
So we looked at the speeds and we looked at the cars and we are going to be fighting between me, Viso and Joseph. That's where we still are, so I decided not to go. I think it was smarter. We had a pretty smooth month so far. If I felt that I had a car to put it on the pole, of course I was going to be out there pounding around.
But I didn't feel‑‑ the speed wasn't there. I enjoyed watching, actually. I was waving at Marco, said hi to him on the inspection and stuff, and I just watched.
Q. Your call?
TONY KANAAN: No, it was our call. But we talked to the owners, and I can't make the calls alone. My name is‑‑ although it's KV, it's not Kanaan says there‑‑ so no. (Laughter).
