HVM Scores a Jackpot in Las Vegas, Wirdheim 5th and Fastest Rookie, Rodolfo 7th

BJORN WIRDHEIM, #4 HVM/LOLA/FORD-COSWORTH/BRIDGESTONE

Bjorn on Qualifying: "The Liqui Moly car is good. I am very happy to be starting fifth here in Las Vegas. I am getting the hang of these ovals quickly and I do enjoy them. So far my best two qualifying results have come on the two ovals and I am proud of those results considering I had never driven on an oval prior to coming to America this year. I am looking forward to practice tonight, driving at night will be another first for me and I can't wait for the fast pace of the race tomorrow. We will make sure to give the fans the best show in Vegas on Saturday night."

Rodolfo Lavin, #55 HVM/Lola/Ford-Cosworth/Bridgestone

Rodolfo on Qualifying: "I am happy because other than driving the two-seater with my friends from the Mexican media, qualifying was my first time running the car today. We had a gearbox problem this morning and I only had one timed lap so we knew we would have to get the job done quickly in qualifying, so that being said, I am happy to be seventh. The car feels good, I don't want to rush to make too much of a judgment because I haven't run much. I will be able to know more after we run tonight. HVM always has a good oval car and we've proved that again today."
