Al Unser Jr. Driver Quote:

"I have never had this much fun in a single seat open wheel race car in my life. You don't get this kind of racing anywhere or anytime in these types of cars. I absolutely love Texas Motor Speedway, and I cannot wait to come back here in October.

"I am thrilled that my team did such an awesome job getting my car so good that it was able to run side by side with the field all day. I am extremely happy for Tickets.com and Starz Encore Superpak that they are able to be a part of such a fantastic team and an amazing series.

"The formula for the Indy Racing Northern Lights Series is the formula for the future for single seat open wheel racing, and today's race proved that. It was clean racing and it was good racing. The competitiveness alongside with the safety of this series is unsurpassed and I just am so proud to be a part of it.

"I tell you, I love driving race cars but today was unbelievable. I was in my seat, but I promise I was standing up the whole time. We had some problems with our telemetry going from our car to the pits, which is why we had to pit so early. That caught us out later in the race and is ultimately why we went down from first, but the car was so good that we were able to get back up towards the front. I just can't say enough for what a great day this was and what a fantastic racing series this is. I can't wait for Pikes Peak next weekend."
