Statements from Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates drivers Scott Pruett and Juan Pablo Montoya:

Scott Pruett:

"Sunday's race brought out a wide range of emotions from me. Although I am still upset that I did not win the race in Mexico City or finish 1-2, I do feel a lot better. I spoke to Juan Pablo and he apologized and I do know that what happened was not intentional on Juan's part. He and I have worked great together in the past -- winning the 24 Hours - and I know we will work together in the future. Racing is an emotional sport and that is part of its beauty. I have been in racing for a long time and sometimes these things happen. I have moved on and now just look forward to getting back to racing."

Juan Pablo Montoya:

"As I said for the last couple of days, I am very sorry about what happened with Scott and I am really disappointed that we did not finish 1-2. I think that we had the best cars in the field and I know Scott, Brian and the whole 41 team deserved better. I feel bad that the whole situation happened and told Scott that I was sorry about it. I completely understand Scott's frustration as I would feel the same way. I am now just looking forward to Las Vegas."
