Chicagoland: Andretti Green Racing race notes

Raphael Matos, ...

Raphael Matos, #27 AFS Racing/Andretti Green Racing Dallara/Firestone
"It was the best third-place finish of my life. We had a plan today for me to win the championship and Arie to win the race. He really deserved to win a race this year, and it worked perfectly for us. I'm very happy for him and I'm really happy for the AFS Racing/Andretti Green Racing team. They deserve this championship as much as I do."

"It was perfect. This is a dream scenario - me winning the race and Rafa winning the championship. It's more than words can describe. Green, white, checkered is always nerve-wracking. We got a good restart, thank God, and Rafa and I worked beautifully today. Ana (Beatriz) was definitely a tough competitor. My Firestone tires held up beautifully, it was amazing. The car was so consistent from lap one to the end. AGR, AFS, Targus, my sponsor, everyone helped out. It was just a beautiful weekend."
