McDONALD'S DRIVER RAHAL BECAME THE YOUNGEST POLESITTER IN SERIES HISTORY AT THE HONDA GRAND PRIX OF ST. PETE; DOORNBOS TO START 13TH

Graham Rahal, No. 02 McDonald's Dallara/Honda/Firestone: "It's an exciting day for me and a great day for the whole McDonald's team. It's exciting to be here. I obviously love St. Pete. It was good to me last year, and it's great to be on the pole this year. We didn't really know what to expect because we had the primary tires on there while a couple of guys had the alternates (in the Firestone Fast Six). The alternates were consistently faster today. I didn't really know what to think. I'll tell you what, the car was good, the guys were working hard, and it's great to be on top."

Robert Doornbos, No. 06 Dallara/Honda/Firestone: "It's very competitive here and that's why the IndyCar Series is a great series. We started strong this morning and were up to P3 with a good car. The qualifying with the reds caught us out and the balance shifted. We came in and were P5 and just got bumped in the last lap by Tony. It's a long race and for sure we will be strong in the race."
