Birmingham: AFS Racing/Andretti Autosport preview

CHARLIE KIMBALL, ...

CHARLIE KIMBALL, #26 TEAM LEVEMIR® FLEXPEN® CAR

* Finished fourth in the Firestone Indy Lights season opener in St. Petersburg

"I'm excited to go back to Barber. The #26 Team Levemir® FlexPen® car showed well at the open test in Birmingham earlier this year. Our team has made improvements since then, and I'm sure the car will be up front all weekend. We can definitely build on our fourth place finish in St. Pete. I'm looking forward to another chance for our first podium finish."

MARTIN PLOWMAN, #27 TEAM AFS RACING/ANDRETTI AUTOSPORT CAR

* Finished in sixth place at the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg

"I'm really looking forward to getting out there in the AFS Racing/Andretti Autosport car. We had a really strong car in testing at Barber during the winter, and I feel that our chances this weekend are going to be good to hopefully get our first pole and win for the season. In St. Pete we were strong in practice but we didn't get to show our true potential in qualifying. With the rain and weather problems, the race turned into a complete lottery. The focus is now on getting our first win."
