"Overall I can't be too upset (with a third-place finish). We've had four podiums in four races, and we're still leading the points going into Indy, so it's a very good thing for my team and I. I have to thank my engineer Doug Zister for everything. I think with the rain coming in for the race today here at Barber, we wanted to change the car and set it up for wet conditions in case the rain came halfway thru. I think we just missed it a little bit because it didn't rain until the last five laps. It was a bit of a handful, but I'm happy to take home third. I want to thank RePLAY XD, Young Marines and everyone else that's a part of my team."

Matthew Brabham, No. 83 United Fiber & Data/MAZDASPEED
• Third-generation driver was battling for fifth before pressure issue took him out of contention
• Shown ending the race in P12

"I think it was something along the lines of a fuel pump issue because an alarm came up on the dash saying fuel pressure. I'm not sure exactly what happened; the guys will come back and have a look at it. It was just one of those things that happens. I was running in sixth; it would have been good for points, but I think I got over half way to get some of those race points, so it didn't quite qualify as a DNF (did not finish) - so that's good on the positive side. Not such a good weekend for me, but the United Fiber & Data/MAZDASPEED crew is going to be working hard and pushing at it, so we'll see how we end up in Indy."


Shelby Blackstock, No. 28 Starstruck
• Started in the fourth grid position
• Captured a third-place finish - his eighth Pro Mazda podium

"Feeling pretty good - it was a great progression for the car throughout the weekend. We learned a lot and I'm very happy. Unfortunately we didn't have the pace at the end of the race for the other two cars. We had a good start... We'll take what we learned on to Indy and see if we can go for a win there."

Garett Grist, No. 27 DaVinci Foods/Lander Property Management
• Began the 20-lap race from the eighth position
• Came away with a seventh-place finish - the rookie's best Pro Mazda finish to date and second top-10 finish of 2014

"Today was a good day for us. We made changes with the DaVinci Foods/Lander Property Management car and improved it a lot. We ended up with the third fastest race lap and could have finished a lot higher if it wasn't for traffic. The last few laps, I was catching the guys in front of me by over half a second per lap. We got back to the pace we previously had after struggling throughout the weekend. Huge thank you to my crew for all their hard work and persevering all weekend."
