Sears Point: Andretti Green Racing qualifying I notes

Raphael Matos, ...

Raphael Matos, #27 AFS/AGR Dallara/Firestone
"I don't like finishing second. We were hoping to be on the pole, but it was a tough session. It was difficult to time traffic and I caught traffic on both of my new tire runs. At least the guy that I'm battling for the championship is behind me, so that is a good thing. I think the AFS/Andretti Green car will be consistent tomorrow. It's just a matter of making the right adjustments for the race."

Arie Luyendyk Jr., #26 Targus/AGR/AFS Dallara/Firestone
"It was a pretty bad session for us. Physically, my knee is killing me. It's hard to concentrate on the car and that leads to dumb mistakes. The Targus/Andretti Green/AFS Racing car is pretty good. It's just so close here - a couple tenths is 10 spots. It's really competitive here this weekend. Having a qualifying run like this is not a positive thing, but hopefully we can turn things around even though it is tough to pass here."
