AFS RACING/ANDRETTI AUTOSPORT FIRESTONE INDY LIGHTS NOTES AND QUOTES, POST-RACE CARNEROS 100

CHARLIE KIMBALL, #26 TEAM LEVEMIR® FLEXPEN® CAR

"We had something earlier in the race, but we were running quite a bit less downforce than Hinch. By the end of the race, we had used too much of my tires early on. The #26 Levemir® FlexPen® car was quick. I think we had the pace to win if we had been out front. It's just hard to pass here at Infineon. It's a great result here in California where I have a lot of friends, family and sponsors here to cheer me on."

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

"It's just an unfortunate thing. This is what happens in racing. When you start in the back, you have to take these risks. I just feel bad for the guys. They worked late last night to figure out what was wrong with the electrical system. We made some changes this morning to get a good race car so we could pass. The car was on fire, and I felt we could have done it. I feel sorry for the team because we had a top-five car today. This car definitely had it."
