QUICK TRIM DRIVER RAHAL FINISHED 10TH IN THE PEAK ANTIFREEZE & MOTOR OIL INDY 300; FORMULA DREAM DRIVER MUTOH FINISHED 13TH

Graham Rahal, No. 02 Quick Trim Dallara/Honda/Firestone: "The Quick Trim car felt pretty good; I definitely felt we had a car that, overall, could compete for the top-three. But then when we got out to the front of our pack I just couldn't keep the position; people were just driving around me and taking off. Clearly I wanted a better finish than we had. We should have been able to get a top-three, top-five. It just wasn't in the cards."

Hideki Mutoh, No. 06 Formula Dream/Panasonic Dallara/Honda/Firestone: "We made a big change overnight so at the start of the race I was conservative to see how it would react. Then we had a problem in the pits but sometimes human error is a part of racing. We hung in there and finished the race. Our position was okay, not great, but we are very pleased with the progress we made. We made very good progress in this race that will help us in Kentucky and if we can continue progressing in Kentucky we can carry good momentum for Japan."
