RHR, Dominguez Ready to Race to the Front in Tomorrow's Gran Premio

With two of the fastest drivers and two of the fastest pitcrews in the paddock, Herdez Competition is confident they can race to the front in tomorrow's Grand Premio. It has been a challenging start to the weekend on the track, as the team has struggled to find ideal grip on the bumpy 2.795-mile road course. Off the track, Mario, Ryan and the team enjoy the overwhelming support of the thousands of energetic Mexican fans.

MarioDominguez, #55 Herdez/Lola/ Ford-Cosworth

Mario on final qualifying: "Of course we were hoping to give our fans and sponsors a better result today. My crew has been working very hard, we have made a lot of changes to the car to stabilize the front and it has been challenging. I have the best strategists in the paddock and I love challenges so I plan to race to the front tomorrow and I am sure my crew will help me get there with a great plan and perfect pitstops."

Ryan Hunter-Reay, #4 Herdez/Lola/Ford-Cosworth

Ryan on final qualifying:"We're still not where we need to be. We had a decent run on our first set of tires at which time we were sitting in sixth position. We made a couple more changes before our final run and we used our Bridgestone Alternate Tire, unfortunately we just weren't able to achieve any additional grip for the front of the car. We are going to give it everything we've got tomorrow, that is for sure."

Keith Wiggins, Co-Owner/Managing Director: "We are very confident and looking forward to a good race. Qualifying was not up to our usual standard but we always have good race cars and successful strategies."
