LEXINGTON, Ohio (August 9, 2009) - AFS Racing/Andretti Green Racing drivers J.R. Hildebrand and Sebastian Saavedra finished third and 18th, respectively, in Sunday's running of the Mid-Ohio 100 Firestone Indy Lights race at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Hildebrand started today's race from the third position and Saavedra started 15th.

The next Firestone Indy Lights race is the Carneros 100, August 23rd at the Infineon Raceway.

J.R. Hildebrand, #26 AFS Racing/Andretti Green Racing Dallara/Firestone:

"Overall, it was a tough weekend for us. I am really happy to get on the podium after some of the trouble we had earlier in the weekend. It was a good day for us in the points. I am going to my home track in a couple of weeks, so I am really looking forward to the race at Infineon."

Sebastian Saavedra, #27 AFS Racing/Andretti Green Racing Dallara/Firestone:

"It was a disappointing weekend. We showed we had a car that could win with our times and speed. There were great opportunities for me early in the race. Once I didn't have anyone in front of me it changed the game. I made a mistake and it took us out. I'm very sad and feel sorry for the team. We are still in the championship game with three races to go."
