1994 Race Recap:

Qualifying Position:    14th
Finishing Position:      6th

Qualifying on the 7th row, the Galles team soon made their way to the front to clinch a 6th place finish - Adrian Fernandez' highest career IndyCar finish to date. (Fernandez would record a 5th place finish in Elkhart Lake one month later.)

1995 Mid-Ohio Preview:

Rick Galles, Team Owner: "We feel very good going into this race. Our goal from the beginning has been to build a team with which any championship driver can jump in the car and win a championship. Although we did not win Michigan (3rd place finish), we showed a total team effort - from the driver of the race car to the driver of the truck. Our motto has always been 'No One is Bigger Than The Team' and that is what we have shown over and over this season and will continue to show in the final races."
