Raphael Matos, #27 AFS/AGR Dallara/Firestone
"I love St. Petersburg. The atmosphere is great and everything was just working great today with the AFS Racing/Andretti Green Racing car. I just can't thank all of those guys enough. Michael Andretti, Kim Green, Kevin Savoree and Gary Peterson have put a lot into the program. This is great for our sponsors, Automatic Fire Sprinklers and oso*fresh. This is a great feeling for them, too. This is our first victory of the year and hopefully we can repeat tomorrow."
Arie Luyendyk Jr., #26 AGR/AFS Dallara/Firestone
"The AGR/AFS Racing car was great today. It had a bit of understeer in it but the whole race I was quicker than the guys in front of me. I wish I would have gotten around those guys a little sooner. Qualifying was tough. We went with a different setup for the race and the car seemed to come alive. I feel great and it was an awesome 40 laps."
