STARTING POSITION: 25TH FINISHING POSITION: 21ST

ADRIAN FERNANDEZ -- #10 Tecate Beer/Quaker State Lola Mercedes-Benz

That was a very frustrating race. At the beginning of the race, the car developed an oversteer and a push. When the incident happened at the beginning of the race, I had to dive to the inside to avoid the crash. There was debris and cars everywhere. I lost two laps right after that because we thought we had a problem. It really hurts when you lose two laps at Indianapolis. We were able to work our way up to 15th position before the engine let go. It's sad because the Galles crew worked really hard this month. I was trying to be patient as much as I could in order to finish the 200 laps. All we can do now is go to Milwaukee and see what happens.

We were down on power in the race. We thought we had suspension failure and rather than risk our driver's life, we made the decision to bring him in. The day was frustrating for all of us, but the team never gave up - we just hung in there and did the best we could. We have a lot of races ahead of us - we have to focus now on getting ready for the rest of the season.
