Alex Tagliani on the Firestone 550K Race:
"The team did a fantastic job tonight and gave me a really good car so it's disappointing to not be able to capitalize on that. We had a little issue in Qualifying yesterday and the guys worked on it last night and fixed the problem And you could see that we had a great car when we got out front. Once I got out front, I had a great car and the Bowers and Wilkins #77 car was absolutely amazing. We realized we had a small issue in Indianapolis and it carried over here in Qualifying. But the guys worked very hard and found the problem last night and I knew that tonight when I had such a good car. But the racing is just so competitive that you just can't make it up when you start from the back. I'm so proud of the boys and so proud to show what a good car we had when we got out front. That is testament to the hard work of the team and shows the character of everyone on this team. Now, we know we have a good car so we will leave and regroup and do a better job in Iowa."
Rob Edwards, team Chief Operating Officer, on the Firestone 550K Race:
"I'm disappointed with where we finished as we were on the same strategy as Will Power and it looks like he finished a bit better than we did. It was a difficult weekend and when we were up front, we showed that we had a good car but we just weren't as good in traffic, so that was a disappointment. Luckily Phil (McRoberts, fueler) is fine and he managed to get a full load of fuel into the car before the miscue in the pits. We learned a lot this weekend about making a better oval car and as a first year team, it was nice to lead laps tonight."
