"I'm really looking forward to this season and partnering with XM Satellite Radio. This is the first time in a couple of years that I've known exactly what I'm going to do for a whole season. Andretti Green Racing is a great team and I'm not surprised everything has come together so well because the team was blended. I expect to be strong because some of the experienced guys on the team moved over to our car and we brought in some new guys to make a good mix of people. We had a good car at the open test in Homestead and I'm excited for the XM Satellite Radio team."

George Klotz, Team Manager, on the Toyota Indy 300

"The XM Satellite Radio team has come together really quickly. We started working on this program in late December and we have had very little time to put all of the pieces in place. The crew has worked extremely hard getting the cars ready and Bryan has done a great job. We had no mechanical problems during the two open tests and Bryan was fast at both Homestead and Phoenix. The season is very long but I expect our team to be in the fight every week."
