Marlboro Team Penske
Grand Prix Of St. Petersburg Quotes

"I'm really looking forward to racing in St. Petersburg next season. I think it will add yet another dimension to the Series because we'll be competing on ovals, road courses and street courses. The 2005 season will be much tougher on the drivers, and the Series Champion will have to display consistency on all three types of circuits. I think the fans in St. Petersburg will see a great show when we hit the track in April."

-- Helio Castroneves, Marlboro Team Penske, 2001 and 2002 Indianapolis 500 Winner
-- #3 Marlboro Team Penske Dallara/Toyota

"I raced in St. Petersburg in 1997 with the Formula Ford Series and I'm definitely looking forward to going back to compete there. It was a great circuit back then and the fans were very receptive to us, so I know we'll have a great welcome next year. I'm also anxious to see how some of the IRL guys stack up against the former CART drivers on the street course since most of us haven't competed with them at this level."

-- Sam Hornish Jr., Marlboro Team Penske, 2001 and 2002 IndyCar Series Champion
-- #6 Marlboro Team Penske Dallara/Toyota
