#26 AFS/AGR driver:J.R. Hildebrand, started fourth, finished 14th "It was a tough day for the #26 car. There were yellows right and left and a lot of wrecks in turns three and four. We picked up some debris during one of the early cautions and had a slow leak in the right rear tire. By the time we got into the pits it was completely flat and when you have to pit and no one else does it's kind of a bummer. Today wasn't really anyone's fault, just bad luck, which makes it harder. The whole AFS/AGR crew is doing a great job. We'll be looking forward to better luck in Indy."
#27 AFS/AGR driver: Sebastian Saavedra, started second, finished first"The #27 car was able to get perfect timing on the very last restart. I was in a good position behind Wade (Cunningham) and was able to get around him by turn one. From there it was just history because the AFS/AGR car was so great. The guys did a good job with everything; it was just unbelievable. I'm so happy to be able to have this win for my team."
