McDONALD'S DRIVER RAHAL MATCHED HIS BEST OVAL FINISH OF THIRD PLACE IN THE INDY JAPAN 300; SERVIA BROUGHT THE TEAM A FOURTH PLACE

Graham Rahal, No. 02 McDonald's Dallara/Honda/Firestone: "The McDonald's boys have been working awfully hard this entire time and we've had the pace and it's nice to get our first podium on a super speedway and second of the season on an oval. It's such an interesting track and a change from what we're used to with the classic super speedway shape. The McDonald's boys did a great job in the pits today and we saved a lot of fuel which put us in that position."

Oriol Servia, No. 06 Dallara/Honda/Firestone: "It was a very good race. I'm extremely happy for the team to finish just behind Ganassi is very good. I'm very pleased but obviously I would have preferred to be on the podium but Graham had a run on me there at the end and he got the best out of it. I'm happy with the performance, I'm happy that the team gave me the opportunity. We had a good four races and definitely gained momentum and I hope we can continue the momentum next year. I think we can be contenders for the championship if we start together from Day 1. That's what I really hope will happen. I'm happy how things have gone. I want to thank Carl and Bernadette Haas, Mike Lanigan and McDonald's for the opportunity."
