AFS RACING/ANDRETTI AUTOSPORT FIRESTONE INDY LIGHTS NOTES AND QUOTES, PRE-RACE TOYOTA GRAND PRIX OF LONG BEACH

CHARLIE KIMBALL, #26 TEAM LEVEMIR® FLEXPEN® CAR

* Currently in second place in the Firestone Indy Lights point standings

"I'm looking forward to going to Long Beach coming off a podium finish at Barber. It's kind of a home race, and I'm going to have a lot of friends, family and fans coming to support me. Driving the pace car around the course last week for media day was a really good reminder of what the track looks like. After St. Pete I think the whole AFS Racing/Andretti Autosport team learned a lot from a street course perspective, and the #26 Levemir® FlexPen® car will be fast when we hit the track in Long Beach."

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

* Currently in fourth place after the race at Barber

"After a solid points holding at Barber, I'm really looking forward to capitalizing on the team's optimal performance lately. I believe it's time that we start delivering the results that I know we're capable of. So far we've been consistent but now is the time to get that first win in the #27 AFS Racing/Andretti Autosport car. Long Beach is a track that I know very well, and last year I was quick and had quite a bit of success during qualifying. Now is the time to do it, and the team is ready to go for it."
