FIRESTONE INDY LIGHTS QUALIFYING RESULTS
J.R. Hildebrand #26 AFS/AGR driver: "I feel okay; the session was hit or miss depending on when you were on track. The track was hard to get used to, it was really wet when we first went out and then dry at the end of the session. Assuming it's dry tomorrow, we will be able to work with the car in the actual conditions at the time. I know there is some left in me and some left in the car, so we should be strong come tomorrow."
Sebastian Saavedra #27 AFS/AGR driver: "I'm not really happy with my qualifying run today. We would've had a top-five start if I hadn't been penalized for my small spin at the start of the session. But we will do our best to work our way through the field during tomorrow's race.
