WATKINS GLEN, New York. (July 4, 2009) - AFS Racing/Andretti Green Racing drivers J.R. Hildebrand and Sebastian Saavedra finished first and fourth, respectively, in Saturday's running of the Corning 100 Indy Lights race at Watkins Glen International. Hildebrand started today's race from the fourth position and Saavedra started second.

The next Firestone Indy Lights race is on July 11, for the Toronto 100.

J.R. Hildebrand, #26 AFS Racing/Andretti Green Racing Dallara/Firestone:

"It doesn't get any better (than an American winning on the Fourth of July). This race win couldn't have happened at a better time for us. I knew we had a strong car going into this race. We were sitting there thinking, 'We cannot accept defeat today.' It's America's birthday. I can't be more happy with it."

Sebastian Saavedra, #27 AFS Racing/Andretti Green Racing Dallara/Firestone:

"I'm very happy for my team. J.R. did an awesome job. He had an incredible car. We made a little mistake when it came to setup for the race but I'm very happy. The AFS/Andretti Green guys did an awesome job. We captured the points that we needed for the championship."
