Dominguez Makes Cinco de Mayo Debut at Indy

Mario on the day: "I can't believe that I ran my first laps around this amazing track today. This is an absolute dream come true for me. I have to give credit to my crew for getting this together in such a short period of time. Despite some issues we still made it out there and we were able to pass three phases of the Rookie test today. We had a small issue with the rear wing and we were very loose, but we did it. We only managed to run two hours and it was our first two hours ever running this car but we accomplished a lot and I am relieved. Now we can turn our focus to making the car better and I look forward to that."

Tyler Tadevic, Team Owner: "The PCM crew has done an unbelievable job. They accomplished in 12 days what the other teams have had four weeks to get done. And in two hours today, they accomplished what everyone else had two days to get done and I am so proud of them. It hasn't been easy and the pressure was on today, but in two hours we ran the car for our first time, we did our systems checks, we ran our first laps and passed the first three phases of the rookie tests. So I think that proves how talented Mario and our guys are. Also, I just want to say thank you to Honda, Firestone and IndyCar and of course our partners in Mexico City for the help they have given us."
