WATKINS GLEN, New York (July 3, 2009) - AFS/AGR #26 driver J.R. Hildebrand will start from the fourth position for the Corning 100 Indy Lights race on Saturday July 4. He turned a best-lap speed of 124.726 miles per hour. Hildebrand's teammate, Sebastian Saavedra, driver of the #27 AFS/AGR car, will start second. Saavedra's best-lap speed was 124.637 miles per hour.

Coverage of the Corning 100 can be seen on Versus on Monday, July 6, starting at 11 p.m. (EDT).

J.R. Hildebrand #26 AFS/AGR driver:

"We had a pretty good car for qualifying; we weren't going full throttle and we are still starting on the second row. I got caught up in some traffic on the last stint of the run so I think we could've picked up some time there, which is frustrating. But we have a really good car. We'll focus on the race set-up tomorrow morning and make any last minute changes. I hope we can make our way through traffic and have a strong finish."

Sebastian Saavedra #27 AFS/AGR driver:

"I made a small mistake in the last corner going to into what is the (finishing) turn for us (Turn 9). I think there's at least one tenth that I lost there. Still I'm very happy. Now it's time to show what we've got. It's all about the points moving forward. There are so many points we could have had a couple of the past races. But I'm confident we will have a great weekend."
