No. 28 K-Line Insulators USA Mazda
  • Started: 5 // Finished: 3
  • Championship: 9th (133 pts.)
  • Drove an impressive race running as high as second before claiming the last spot on the podium
      “I think this just shows the work Andretti has done this weekend, we were fast during qualifying and during the race we had a great, consistent car. Santi (Urrutia) and I were able to run side-by-side and we were able to stick two-wide with Colton (Herta) and the teammates around the whole track. The team really focused on having a good race car and it paid off.”

       

       
      No. 98 Deltro Energy Mazda
      • Started: 1 // Finished: 4
      • Championship: 3rd (181 pts.)
      • Fell back to the fifth position after leading 31 laps before crossing the finish line in fourth
          “(Matheus Leist) definitely had it figured out today. Another car was up on us and there’s not much you can do on a short oval like this when (the car) goes loose. We were a little bit on the unfortunate end of the stick this weekend, but we’ll bounce back for Toronto. It seems like some guys fell off a little bit more than we did, so the end we just had a little bit and it was just enough to get Kyle (Kaiser) which I’m pleased with because he’s in the championship lead.”

           

           
           
          No. 27 Synova Mazda
          • Started: 6 // Finished: 7
          • Championship: 4th (173 pts.)
          • Battled with teammate Ryan Norman for position throughout the 100-lap race
              “Another really tough race for us. We started right off the bat being extremely loose from the first lap, and then it just got worse and worse and worse. I tried to keep it off the wall and collect points – we weren’t really racing today. I just tried to hold onto it and bring seventh-place home. We didn’t have much more than that in the car.”

               

               
              No. 48 Flip Side Mazda
              • Started: 4 // Finished: 8
              • Championship: 11th (124 pts.)
              • Collected 11 points in today's race
                  “The beginning of the race went already, I kind of timed the passes I was going for a little wrong so they didn’t all work out. For having not really running at Indy, this was my first real oval race experience so I’m glad today to have gotten the lap times and am happy with what we learned. The next oval we go to, we’ll be stronger.”
