Graham Rahal, No. 02 Quick Trim Dallara/Honda/Firestone: "The Quick Trim car was really good. The guys have been working hard. Obviously we showed up here with a good setup and it was nice. I haven't been on a 1.5 mile oval in almost a year. It was nice to have a good car to be confident and comfortable in. And the qualifying car was as good as we could have it. We're lacking a little bit of speed overall but we're pleased with the starting position. This is a big race for Quick Trim and the home event for the team. I think our race car is pretty quick. It would be nice to have a good result and even nicer to win one."

Hideki Mutoh, No. 06 Formula Dream/Panasonic Dallara/Honda/Firestone: "I appreciate having a teammate in Graham because I really didn't try a qualifying simulation in practice so I copied his setup and it went very well. The car feels good so far and we are going to keep working to improve the race setup. It's definitely nice to race at home and sleep in my own bed."
