      "We are looking forward to Portland. I got my first Indy Pro 2000 win there last year and I feel comfortable with the track, especially after my Indy car test there a few weeks ago. Andretti Autosport was very competitive in Portland last year, so we will take the momentum from the last four race wins and hopefully get a couple more, -that’s the goal. We are not letting up at all even with a big championship points lead."

          "I am ready to get back to Portland. We were fast there last year with pole position [Race 2], but just didn’t have luck with a crash at the start of the race. I’ll be looking to finish strong there this year."

              "I am really excited for Portland. Andretti Autosport had great cars there last year and we are going to roll off with good cars this year. I really enjoy the track - it is a fun one to drive. We are really coming down to the end of the year and we are just going to go for good results and finish year off on a high note for next year."
