"Here in Long Beach, it's all about the start. Something happened, so I don't know if we had different wing settings than Gabby (Chaves); he was able to get us going into Turn 1. You run such low downforce here because of the long straightaways, so if you're behind someone, you really can't get close to them. I made a couple mistakes at the beginning of the race, then I was able to get settled in, catch back up to Gabby and ended up with the fastest lap of the race. Now we're identically tied in the championship, so I think it's going to be me and Gabby on the front row a lot, battling this year, and I think Matt (Brabham) is going to be sneaking up, too. I'm really excited to see how the rest of the season goes for the RePLAY XD team."

Matthew Brabham, No. 83 United Fiber & Data/MAZDASPEED
• Best Indy Lights career finish to date in third
• He and father Geoff Brabham now both hold podium finishes on the streets of Long Beach

"It was a tough race; it's so hard to pass here. Zach (Veach) was behind Gabby (Chaves) there, and I think midpoint in the race, the Andretti Autosport cars were a lot quicker than he was, so we caught him and just couldn't make any passes. I think by the end of the race, all of our tires were falling off and looks like these guys were able to manage them a bit better than I did. The United Fiber & Data/MAZDASPEED car and I, we were just hanging on at the end there - I grazed the wall a couple of times, it was pretty fun (haha)."
