SCCA WORLD CHALLENGE POST RACE QUOTES
TOURING 1 LOU GIGLIOTTI (#1 LG Motorsports Saleen Mustang) -- Winner of the T1 Class -- It was a lot of fun. We got the heaviest car out there. All those yellows did nothing but help us. Our Goodyear tires are so good. We just had a great race. We were worried about that Acura because it's such a light car. Rob Fellows did a real job. He did a real good job. It was a great race. Getting two white flags was a little confusing. I don't know what that was all about. It was a smooth day. We had enough yellows that we didn't lap anyone except for a couple of real slow cars and they were really nice and let us go by. The pack stayed together which didn't give us the traffic problem that we're used to. To go from last in the Busch race to first here is really exciting.
ROB FELLOWS (#4 AER Mfg./McGraw Racing Ford Mustang) -- Second Place Finisher in the T1 Class -- I think a couple of more laps and we would have had a shot at Lou. We had a great car. The car guys did an unbelievable job. I can't say enough about it. The car was awesome. It doesn't get any better then that except for maybe 10 feet further in front. I really expected we were going to have some trouble with the traffic, but with all the yellows it wasn't an issue at all. It was great. that's the way I like to run, just flat out all the time.
SIMON GREEG (#59 LG Motorsports Ford Mustang) -- Third Place Finisher in the T1 Class -- It was unbeliveable. I thought I was going have to settle for fourth place, but I knew I had something in reserve. Towards the end there they gave us an extra white flag lap., thank goodness. I needed that time to make my last maneuver. It was really close. Towards the end it got kind of hairy but overall, it was a straight race. It was a fun race overall.

MICHAEL GALATI (#44 RealTime Racing/Comptech Acura Integra R) -- Winner of the T2 Class -- I got to thank the RealTime Crew, Jerry, Kirk, Nate, Rich and everyone over there did a great job. They worked all night on getting the car together. They gave me a great car. The handling was great. It was a great race. It was close. To bad there were so many yellows, but it was a very exciting race. It was pretty smooth out there. Everyone was dicing it out, but they kept it clean. Nobody got into anyone. Everybody did a good job.
TAZ HARVEY (#8 Dublin Honda Racing/Redline Oil/Honda Prelude) -- Second Place Finisher in the T2 Class -- I had a lot of fun out there. We had three really good drivers dicing for the lead the whole race. I was listening to the radio trying to figure out how many laps were left, and all of the sudden the white flag came out. I think I waited a little too long to try and make my moves. We just had a great time though. It's a lot of fun racing with such great people.
PIERRE KLEINUBING (#43 RealTime Racing/Comptech Acura Integra R) -- Third Place Finisher in the T2 Class -- It was a lot of fun there racing my teammates Michael and Taz. It was a good race. It was a pretty smooth day. No one touched anyone, so it was smooth. It was a lot of fun.
