Quote on the Kansas Indy 300

"I think the race at Kansas is one of our best events for the IndyCar Series. It's always a sold-out crowd with very enthusiastic fans. It's also an incredibly smooth racetrack so we put on great shows there. I think with the new rules package, as evidenced at Texas, we're going to be doing a lot of side-by-side racing in big groups and I think it's going to be great!"
