Birmingham: AFS/Andretti Autosport qualifying quotes

CHARLIE KIMBALL, ...

CHARLIE KIMBALL, #26 TEAM LEVEMIR® FLEXPEN® CAR

* Will start on the front row in P2 with a quick lap of 1:15.3354 "That was a really good run. The session was really broken up with yellows. Every time we went out when we had a clean lap, the #26 Levemir® FlexPen® car was fast. It was just a question of getting a lap on new tires at the best part of the day when the track warmed up a bit. Those last laps two laps, we knew we had to get it done. I got out there and had a couple of clean laps. It wasn't perfect, but it was good enough for P2. I think we got really good race pace, and I'm looking forward to tomorrow's race."

MARTIN PLOWMAN, #27 TEAM AFS RACING/ANDRETTI AUTOSPORT CAR

* Will start tomorrow's race in P3 with a qualifying time of 1:15.3636 "It was such a chaotic session with so many flags and a lot of traffic. We didn't even get to go out on our second set of tires. We came in with five minutes to go, and then I was shifting from P3 all the way down to P8 as everyone else managed to get more time in. The car was just on rails, so when we ended up P3, I was relieved. I wouldn't say it was a perfect lap, but under the pressure I was extremely happy with the time. With a bit of work, the #27 AFS Racing/Andretti Autosport car will be ready for the race tomorrow."
