St. Pete II: Andretti Green Racing race notes

Raphael Matos, ...

Raphael Matos, #27 AFS/AGR Dallara/Firestone

"I was trying to outbrake Simmons and was already on the inside and he just turned into me. I don't think he had any business doing that. He knew I was at least a half-a-second faster than he was and that I was going to pass him anyway. I got a run on him on the restart and he just closed the door and ruined my race and his race as well. I'm very disappointed for everyone on the AFS Racing/Andretti Green Racing team. There's no question we had the best car all weekend. We came out of the weekend with one win, but we would have liked to have won both races."

Arie Luyendyk Jr., #26 AGR/AFS Dallara/Firestone

"I know that everyone was fighting hard on the first lap but that was ridiculous. I don't know who hit me but I gave them plenty of room. It's just a real shame. We worked really hard yesterday to earn a good starting spot in this race. The Andretti Green Racing/AFS Racing car was getting better and better all weekend and I think I could have moved up and challenged today."
