Al Unser Jr. Driver Quote:

"We gave it what we had in qualifying, and we very happy with our results. What really matters is the race, and I think I have a good race car that can run with the leaders. The bump is still there in turn four but they have definitely made improvements to it so it hasn't been too much of a factor with our set up this weekend. With the track virtually the same as it was in June, I don't see that the racing will be any different. The show we put on here early in the summer was awesome, and that is why we worked so hard this weekend on trying to get a good race set up. If there is wheel to wheel racing going on, I want to make sure that my car can run with the rest of them, and I think that it can.

(On End of 1st Season in Indy Racing League)

This Indy Racing Northern Light Series is a great racing series, and I am very happy to be a part of it for many reasons. Next year is going to be even better, because there are more races and they will be closer together. The fans will get a chance to see the drivers more often on television with the tighter schedule and it will definitely bring more continuity to the series. We have had some great racing this year in this series, and I just see it getting better next year. I love racing on ovals, and this is the premiere oval racing series in America. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else."
