Canadian moves up three spots in the championship points to sit in sixth " I made a few little mistakes at the beginning and I got a bit wide in Turn 3 and 4, but after that, I told myself I needed to settle down. From there I settled into a rhythm and we were able to pull away. It feels so good to win here at Lucas Oil Raceway considering we were so close to winning here last year in USF2000 finishing second. I'm really happy with tonight and it's very special. The last few laps were great; Yancy (Diotalevi, race engineer) was counting down. I slowed my pace a little more towards the end to be a bit more careful and not run into the traffic ahead of me. Huge thank you to the Lander Property Management/Bell Helmets crew for an awesome win."

Shelby Blackstock, No. 28 Starstruck

Started from the third grid position on the 0.625-mile

Captured the fastest lap of the race at 113.127 mph

Finished in seventh place - series sophomore's sixth top-10 finish of the season so far "I thought the No. 28 Starstruck Andretti Autosport Pro Mazda was pretty good at the start; we had a good starting position in third and were going at it from the start. I really only had problems when I was in traffic; the car just wasn't working in our favor. When we were alone, it was the fastest race car on the track, but in traffic, it wasn't the same. Unfortunately I made a mistake during the middle of the race, ended up getting up in the marbles and that cost us a few spots. I'm really proud of the Starstruck crew for how far we've come over the weekend, and it's unfortunate the race didn't have the outcome we wanted. Now we'll be working harder than ever for the races to come."
