Roquin Motorsport tested in St. Louis last week with their capable drivers, Rolando Quintanilla #65 TelMex/Roquin Motorsport/Canel's/Akron Lola and Luis Diaz #64 TelMex/Roquin Motorsport/Canel's/Akron Lola.

Last year, Rolando Quintanilla had his second best finish of his 2000 season at Gateway International. "I really enjoy the Gateway oval track. This will be the second time ever that the Indy Lights series is supporting the IRL, so I am looking forward to another good race! We are prepared and I expect to be very competitive!" stated Rolando.
