Rick Dilorio - Overall & GT Class Winning Car Co-Driver
Zip/Pumpelly Racing #34 Porsche GT3 R
(on deciding to use only one driver)
"We wanted to win, and G&W was going to fast. If we got a yellow, we would have come in for a driver change and fresh tires, but we couldn't afford to do it under green. We knew if we came in, there was no way we could catch back up with G&W."

Spencer Pumpelly - Overall & GT Class Winning Driver
"I didn't make the decision for me to stay in the car. That was Rick's decision. He's the reason we won."

"It was a tough race, that's for sure. This track is really bumpy and rough. The car was perfect though. It was a true team effort."

"It feels great (to get my first win). The beginning of the race was tough because the AGT car gave me a really good race."

Darren Law - Overall & GT Class Second-Place Finisher
G&W Motorsports #81 Porsche GT3 R
"We have been discussing all weekend long that we needed to bring it home today in order to win the (points) championship."

"(Zip/Pumpelly) did the right thing as far as strategy, but we really were banking on everyone doing a driver change."

Matt Drendel - Overall & GT Class Second-Place Finisher
G&W Motorsports #81 Porsche GT3 R
(On points-rival JET Motorsports misfortune during the race)
"It's not over yet. There are still two races. It's happened to us before."

Doug Goad - AGT Class Winner & SGS Class Second-Place Finisher
Team X-1R #09 Corvette (AGT)
Powell Motorsports #011 Corvette (SGS) (On whether racing in two cars affected Powell Motorsports six-race winning streak coming to an end)

"I don't think so, because we didn't lose the opportunity to pit under caution. Devon told me that the #011 was really good, he was just up against some formidable competition."

David Haskell - SGS Class Winner
Speedsource #65 Porsche 911 Supercup
"It was beautiful. It was the first time for both of us racing at this course. I'm sure focusing on only the SGS class helped. I really haven't had that much time in this car, since I usually race in the GS car too."

Selby Wellman - SGS Class Winner
Speedsource #65 Porsche 911 Supercup
"It's a nice track. I expected it to be a lot tighter, but it ran really well."

"I would give anything in the world if the fans were like this in the United States."

Craig Conway - AGT Class Winner
Team X-1R #09 Corvette
"We've really got a great crew. They had to change an engine today before this race."
