Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"I am really disappointed with my result because the Motorola car was much better than a ninth place car. We took a gamble on our strategy and got burned by the yellow. We certainly wanted to end the season on a better note."

Tony Kanaan, #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"Today was an exciting one for the fans and they saw a great race. It was a difficult weekend for me personally, but this was a good result for the Team 7-Eleven crew. Our goal coming into the weekend was to finish third in the championship and we were able to do that."

Marco Andretti, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"We were able to take advantage of the cold tires on the restart and gain some positions at the end of the race. Unfortunately this was another character builder for us. We struggled with the car all weekend. To be able to finish in eighth, after the day we had, was a pretty good finish for the NYSE boys."

Hideki Mutoh, #27 Formula Dream Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"I wish we were able to finish the 2008 season with a better finish, but I am very thankful that the Formula Dream team for worked so hard. They were able to get car back out on track today. I won the Bombardier Rookie of the Year; however it hasn't hit me yet. I am happy but it's really hard to celebrate it after such a disappointing race."
