Hole In The Wall Camps Driver Graham Rahal Became Youngest Winner In Series History With Victory In Today's Honda Grand Prix Of St. Petersburg; Mcdonald's Driver Wilson Led But Finished Ninth

Graham Rahal, No. 06 Hole in the Wall Camps Dallara/Honda/Firestone: "It feels awesome to win! I'm so happy to have won a race and so proud of my guys. Helio is very successful and won a lot of races but I knew we had the pace that we could pull away. We were pulling away before and were aggressive saving fuel. You know there is one more lap left and you just don't want to lose your focus so I was just trying to stay calm and make it through the last set of corners. I knew we had quote a gap so I wasn't too worried. My dad said 'Nice job.' What more is there to say. What a great feeling."

Justin Wilson, No. 02 McDonald's Dallara/Honda/Firestone: "I'm a little disappointed with the result but very pleased with the way that everyone has worked. I felt that the McDonald's car was very quick and we are capable of winning. But circumstances didn't work out so if I didn't win I was very pleased that Graham did. It is obviously a great car and he's great teammate to have. I am very happy that he was able to win in his first IndyCar Series start. I think we will see a lot more of Graham."
