Sebastian Saavedra, Team AFS Racing / Andretti Autosport, No. 27

Saavedra started the season with a third place finish at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. He also finished third in his previous Indy Lights race at Barber Motorsports Park in 2010. In addition, he raced at Barber in the IZOD IndyCar Series in 2011, finishing 26th with gearbox problems.

"After a great start of the season, we go with high expectations to the second race at Barber Motorsports Park. I know I need a good qualifying effort because the passing opportunities are difficult. We tested there a week ago and ended up with the fastest time of the two-day test, so I'm looking forward to doing the same for the race."

Carlos Muñoz, Team Dialy-Ser, No. 26

Munoz finished fourteenth last weekend in his debut for Andretti Autosport at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. This will be his first time racing at Barber Motorsports Park.

"After a disappointing result at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, I know that we will have a good car and be very quick at Barber. I'm confident the weekend will go as we would like it, because the course will be similar to the tracks I am used to racing in Europe. I want to channel my discontent from St. Pete towards a positive result this weekend."
