"It's really an honor to say I'm getting to race at the inaugural Grand Prix of Indianapolis and at a track that I'm looking to extend my championship lead at. A couple of years ago, I had the opportunity to drive on the old road course in an Indy Lights car and set the record. Of course there are some new changes with the track for its next generation, but it looks incredibly fun and I'm very excited to get to try it out today for testing! I'd like to thank my engineer and the Andretti Autosport/RePLAY XD crew for working so hard for me and doing a great job so far this season. We'll be working to keep that going here at Indy!"

Matthew Brabham, No. 83 United Fiber & Data/MAZDASPEED
• The American currently sits sixth in the championship
• Holds one podium and three top-10 finishes thus far in his rookie season
"The new Indy road course layout is very exciting. They have created some great passing opportunities and also added some great viewing points for the fans. Indy is now our home road course track, and it would be fantastic to get a win for the United Fiber & Data/MAZDASPEED crew in the inaugural race. We have been working hard at it and will have no mercy."


Shelby Blackstock, No. 28 Starstruck
• Fresh off a third-place finish at Barber Motorsports Park
• Holds the fifth spot in the championship points standings heading into the weekend
"I'm very excited to get on the new track at IMS. From what I've seen, it looks like a ton of fun and will make for some really good racing! The No. 28 Andretti Autosport Pro Mazda car has made some improvements since our time at Barber Motorsports Park, and we hope that they get us back on track. Let's go racing!"

Garett Grist, No. 27 Lander Property Management/Bell Helmets
• Captured his career best finish to date at Barber with a seventh-place finish
• Moves up to 11th in the championship points standings
"I'm looking forward to the Grand Prix of Indy this weekend. We're back to a track similar to a place like NOLA Motorsports Park, which we've had success on this year (Winterfest 2014). I think it will be a good weekend! We've been working really hard, so I think we're heading there with a good car. We're lucky to have quite a bit of practice the next few days, so it's great as it allows us to be able to make changes and fine tune everything. I have to thank Lander Property Management, Bell Helmets, DaVinci Foods, Sofina Foods, Sparco and the Andretti Autosport team for everything they've been doing for me and our Pro Mazda season together; I would't be here without them."
