Following are comments from our drivers Justin Wilson and Graham Rahal on the death of Paul Newman.

"I am extremely saddened to hear about Paul's passing. He was a great guy to be with around the track. He was one of a kind. Obviously I am just thinking of his family and wishing them well while they are trying to deal with this. It can't be easy. He's going to be missed, not just in the motor racing world but in every area that he participated in, in his life. He affected so many people in a positive way. I'm going to miss him and am fortunate to have known him."
     Justin Wilson, driver of the No. 02 McDonald's race car for Newman/Haas/Lanigan Racing

"It has been a very upsetting 24 hours for the team and my family. Paul has been a huge part of both my success as well as my father's and he will be greatly missed. He was a tremendous man, one that everyone should model their lives after. My sincere condolences go out to the Newman family."
     Graham Rahal, driver of the No. 06 Hole in the Wall Camps race car for Newman/Haas/Lanigan Racing
