McDONALD'S DRIVER BOURDAIS WON THE REXALL GRAND PRIX OF EDMONTON AND RECLAIMED THE SERIES POINTS LEAD; MEDI | ZONE DRIVER RAHAL FINISHED THIRD

Sebastien Bourdais, No. 1 McDonald's Cosworth/DP01/Bridgestone: "We had a decent lead on the first stint and when the yellow came out it bunched everyone up and we were a victim of our results in Toronto and had a bad pit box here. We overcame that and it was an awesome job from everybody from the McDonald's team. We stuck together and said 'Its not over.' We kept plugging away and it worked out and I couldn't be any happier. It is pretty spectacular to get the lead we have leaving here. We'll take it."

Graham Rahal, No. 2 Medi | Zone Cosworth/DP01/Bridgestone: "It was a good job by the whole Medi | Zone team. It was a tough race, I lost radio contact and it was a bit difficult in that aspect but certainly we performed well. During the second stint we were really fast and caught up with the leaders easily. At the end I just didn't have enough for Justin but I'm happy to take a third. To come off of Toronto where neither of our cars finished and come here and be first and third is great. Hopefully we can keep building the momentum in San Jose."
