Open Wheel Series - Andretti Autosports Milwaukee Road To Indy Qualifier Comments
FIRESTONE INDY LIGHTS
STEFAN WILSON, #5 TEAM ANDRETTI AUTOSPORT CAR
* Will start the race in P9
"It looks like we have a good race car. In the long runs, it ran pretty well; better than our qualifying pace. We had a few troubles coming into this weekend, so it's been a bit of a test. We tried a whole different setup than earlier in practice, so the first qualifying lap wasn't great. Our second lap had a bit more grip. We're glad to have made some progress. I'm looking forward to getting out there for the race tomorrow."

SAGE KARAM, #88 TEAM MAZDASPEED/ COMFORT REVOLUTION CAR
* Starts tomorrow's race in P3
"Qualifying went alright today. We ended up third, which is good but we were still hoping for a bit of a better result. We know we're fast, so I think we have a shot at getting it in the race. We have a good race car, so we'll try our best and hopefully the MAZDASPEED/Comfort Revolution car will be on top of the podium tomorrow."

SPENCER PIGOT, #8 TEAM MAZDASPEED/ SKIP BARBER CAR
* Starts the race in P4
"Qualifying wasn't exactly what we wanted, but we'll take P4. We were slowly making improvements to the car and slowly getting closer to the front. Tomorrow will be a long race, but I have to thank my engineer Andy and my team for their hard work this weekend. Hopefully we can make some more improvements and it will be a good race."
ZACH VEACH, #7 TEAM ZAKOSI DATA BACKUP CAR
* Will start the race in pole position
"It's really fun to be at Milwaukee. I've always been a fan of the ovals myself. We've been very fortunate to have been P1 in every session this weekend, so all that's left is the race. With the way the track is, the race will come down to who can conserve their tires the best. I've got a great team with me, and we've been working the the Zakosi Data Backup car hard, so hopefully we can get a win tomorrow."
