DRIVER QUOTES FROM MONTREAL:

#33 BERTRAND GODIN (Player’s Forsythe Racing Team - Player’s/Indeck) "This is a dream come true. It’s wonderful to win in front of our home crowd, in front of the Player’s people. "The track was a little more slippery than yesterday. The balance of the car was great, but it had more understeer than yesterday. I had good traction and that was good because there were a lot of turns that required it. I am so excited!"

#66 ALEXANDRE TAGLIANI (Player’s Forsythe Racing Team-Player’s/Indeck) "We broke a brake line in the back, and I lost my brakes. I’m very disappointed because the car was running well. Unfortunately, I am leaving Montreal without my first-place spot in the championship. I’ll need to work very hard in the next few races to get the points back."

#46 JAMES IRVIN (Riverside Motorsports-E.M. Irvin)(C2 Race winner) "It feels great to be the C2 winner. We’ve been struggling all weekend. It started with our set-up and brakes. We ran out of brakes in our testing and only got about five or ten hot laps. We thought we had the brakes fixed in time for qualifying but we didn’t, so we did some drastic changes over night, along with set-up changes. We managed to stay there until the checkered flag, and that was a whole lot of fun. It s a very nice crowd here."

#32 ALEX BARRON (Lynx Racing-Victory Circle/Red Line Oil/Lynx Racing) "That was the best race I ever had. It was very physical, with lots of bumping and jostling going and, of course, it was very long. You really had to maintain your concentration. This is a very technical track, and there are a lot of tricks and things to learn so you can go fast. Considering how practice and qualifying went, I m very happy with our results, and happy to be leading the championship. I think we’re in the hunt now, and instead of focusing on learning, we’ll be focusing on winning races." (Peter Frey)

#19 MEMO GIDLEY (Lynx Racing) "It was a very physical race, like a gang fight, and the key to the whole thing was to not make mistakes. I spent the first ten laps getting my car trimmed out with the bars and getting things figured out, and then I started picking my way through the field. I moved up a lot of places, partly through passing other cars and partly through taking advantage of other drivers mistakes. Now I just have to do something about qualifying so far back at these races. I’m pleased to be gaining the experience of moving up through the pack, but I’m ready for some experience in leading it. This is a great team and I’m proud to be part of it."

#96 JERET SCHROEDER (P.P.I.-MCI Telecommunications) "Alex Barron, Case Montgomery and I were battling for second place as we went into the last chicane. Unfortunately, three laps into the race, my brakes started fading, and by then they were completely gone. There was nowhere to go and I hit Case. Now, I’m looking ahead to testing at Road America and, of course, to the next Atlantic race." (Sharon Villanueva)

#95 LEO PARENTE (P.P.I.-MCI Telecommunications) "It was a good race for the MCI team. The crew put together a package that got us from the 19th to ninth. I’m also very pleased that we ran race laps that would have put us next to Jeret in qualifying. Friday the 13th proved to be a great day for the team members and me." (Sharon Villanueva)

#35 DAVID POOK (BDJS-HYPE ENERGY Drink/Budweiser/Atomic Clothing) "I achieved my goal for the weekend of finishing in the top-six. I felt that I was faster than Lazzaro and could have had a chance to catch him had I made the pass on Sollenskog sooner." (Nicole Lascelle)
