United Fiber & Data
James Hinchcliffe, No. 27 United Fiber & Data Honda

Posted the fastest time during the morning practice session
Ended the day ranked sixth overall

"Good first day, honestly. The second session was a little bit of a toss up with the weather the way it was. We maybe didn't get as good of read as we would have liked but, at the end of the day, we weren't going the be the guys that did something silly and put the car into the wall trying to win practice. I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned up and I think a good basis to build on for the United Fiber & Data car."

Ryan Hunter-Reay, No. 28 DHL Honda
Recorded a seventh place time during the first practice session of the day
Will qualify in the second group during tomorrow's qualification session

"It was an interesting day, just never really got the flow going - it was just chopped up with red flags so we never really got into a rhythm. We should have been fifth or sixth in the second session, so still have some work to do for tomorrow and will hopefully get the DHL car up front."

Carlos Muñoz, No. 34 Cinsay Honda

Recorded a 13th-place time over both practice sessions
Will qualify in the second group tomorrow

"We finished our first official day of practice today. I have a pretty positive feeling, especially after Practice Two; I think we were pretty close, all of us (Andretti Autosport drivers). Qualifying we're going to need to not make any mistakes. Personally, I think I'm getting better, more familiar with the car; we improved a lot from the first practice to the second. Tomorrow's goal is , of course, to be fast."

Marco Andretti, No. 25 Snapple Honda

Finished on the podium at the 2013 Grand Prix of St. Pete
With 133 career starts, has been running at the finish of 100 races

"The second session was a lot of (red flags) so by the time we got going we only had about 12 laps on the tires. That's some of (the reason for our finishing position), but we still need to improve on the back end (of the car) right now. If the rain starts tonight, tomorrow will be starting over. Typically every practice you have more and more grip, but the rain will wash that away and we'll start over."
