Sears Point I: Andretti Green Racing race notes

Raphael Matos, ...

Raphael Matos, #27 AFS/AGR Dallara/Firestone
"Today was a tough race. We missed the pole by just a tiny amount yesterday, which made things a bit more difficult today. But, we needed to maximize our points today and that's what we did. We came out of this race leading the championship. For tomorrow, we have to make sure we have a strong car to finish ahead of Antinucci again and go to Chicagoland in a position to battle for the championship. Starting seventh tomorrow will be very tough. But, I think the top three guys here are Perera, myself and Antinucci and I believe we will all be up there by the end of the day. It'll just depend on who does a good job at the start and who does a better job getting through traffic."

"Even after just a few laps, the pain was intense, especially during the yellows because I had a chance to think about it. As the race progressed, it got worse and worse. It was so hard to push at the end to stay ahead of (Tom) Dyer. I'm operating right now at five or six tenths, which is frustrating for the championship. Hopefully, I'll be well enough to drive the whole race tomorrow."
