Mid-Ohio: Andretti Green Racing race report

Raphael Matos, ...

Raphael Matos, #26 XM Satellite Radio Acura:

"I came up to lap one of the Aston Martins, which was the first car I was going to lap. I wasn't pushing at all. I was side-by-side with him and he just turned into me. I don't know if he didn't see me or what. It's just very frustrating for the XM Acura guys and everyone at Andretti Green. We were hoping for a good result and I think we had a good shot at a podium finish or better. It's just very unfortunate."

Franck Montagny, #26 XM Satellite Radio Acura:

"I am 100 percent certain we had the car to win today - I am absolutely sure. But, the car was a mess after the crash, so I treated the rest of the race like it was a test. I still pushed like I do when I'm racing and tried to do my best with the car. But, it was quite difficult. Two hours in the car - it was hot - so it's not easy. And, you don't have the same motivation because you're not fighting for places and that's also not easy. But, we did it and it's another experience."
