Alex on qualifying: "It's great to be in San Jose and I am so honored to be representing Redback at their home race. I several members of the company today and they are excited about the weekend and I am excited to do well for them. It is my first time at this circuit and also the first time for my engineer Burke (Harrison), so we had our hands full today. I am looking forward to tomorrow, we are confident in our direction and I think it should be a good day for us.

Mario Dominguez #28 PCM/Molecule/DP01/Cosworth/Bridgestone

Mario on qualifying: "It was a good first day with Pacific Coast Motorsports. We had a few issues with the electronics that took quite a bit of the session to sort out. The guys did a good job getting me back out there and I appreciate their hard work. The team has been very welcoming, they are very professional and I would never believe they are a rookie team; they are really on top of their game. I thought we would have a better session this afternoon in qualifying; I am disappointed to be 14th. We actually went backwards with our set-up this afternoon but we've got a good idea for tomorrow."
