INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (May 31, 2009) - AFS Racing/Andretti Green Racing drivers J.R. Hildebrand and Sebastian Saavedra finished second and third, respectively, in Sunday's running of the Husar's House of Fine Diamonds 100 Indy Lights race at Milwaukee Mile.

The 2009 Firestone Indy Lights schedule resumes with their next race on June 20, at the Iowa Speedway.

J.R. Hildebrand, #26 AFS Racing/Andretti Green Racing Dallara/Firestone:
"(Romancini) had a really good car and he was doing a really good job with it. Having to run behind him the whole race, I started picking up understeer and wearing out the front tires and I just didn't have anything for him at the end. With the lapped car on that restart, I didn't really have a chance to try to jump him. But it was a great finish for the team. I have to thank the AFS/AGR boys, they've done a great job all weekend. I'm looking forward to the race in Iowa."

Sebastian Saavedra, #27 AFS Racing/Andretti Green Racing Dallara/Firestone:
"It was close racing for sure. We knew at the beginning there were really strong guys starting up front. I wasn't very lucky during one of the restarts, and I lost a few positions because someone spun out in front of me. From then on, I just needed to save my tires, concentrate on the race and work my way to the front. We had a strong finish and look forward to the next race in Iowa."
