Roquin Motorsport is back in the saddle for the final event in the Dayton Indy Lights Championship. The Laguna Seca race weekend was no surprise for Roquin when they were awarded their first podium finish.

Martin Bates, Team Manager said, "We have worked hard all year for good results and finally the luck resulted in our favor. The teams have a lot of influence on how the cars perform on the Super Speedway's. Therefore, since Laguna Seca, we have done a lot of work on the cars to try and find maximum speed for this weekend. To be honest, I am not a fan of these tracks for this type of car, it makes the driver pretty much insignificant and basically it's a lottery." <pre> Luis Diaz Fast Facts #65 TelMex/Roquin Motorsport/Canel's/Ericsson/Akron Lola · FIRST PODIUM FINISH AT LAGUNA SECA 2001 · FIRST BEST LAP TIME: 1:17.888 Laguna Seca 2001 · Career starts: 23 · Best career finish 3rd in Laguna Seca - Roquin Motorsport · Best career start 4th in Portland and Laguna Seca - Roquin Motorsport · In the 2001 season, he has completed 550 of 565 laps · Awarded the Move to the Front award in Milwaukee 2001 · 2001 Start/Finish: Mexico 11/11; Long Beach 11/9; Texas 7/4; Milwaukee 9/4; Portland 4/9; Kansas 11/7; Toronto 6/5; Mid-Ohio 6/11; St. Louis 7/6; Road Atlanta 5/7; Laguna Seca 4/3
