2014 Toronto (Race 1): Chevrolet IndyCar Race Quotes

SEBASTIEN BOURDAIS, NO. 11 TEAM HYDROXYCUT KVSH RACING CHEVROLET, RACE WINNER: ITS BEEN A WHILE, WHAT ARE YOU THINKING RIGHT NOW? "So many things. I am a bit speechless to be honest because it’s the kind of race you do not want to lose kind of thing. It just went perfect from green to checkered flag and these guys, Hydroxycut gave us great support this weekend. Lone Star and Circle K and having a celebration with these guys."

HOW DID YOU GET THIS DONE TODAY? YOU DOMINATED THIS RACE: "Yeah it was a pretty dominant performance by our Chevy-powered machine. We knew we had pace after qualifying but we really didn’t know how it was going to be on a long run and tire wear. It was back to the old days of saving fuel, making it, being smart, and making it stick today. I really couldn’t be happier. Thanks to the fans, thanks for the support all these years. It’s been six years man, just like yesterday for the pole and it’s been sweet."

HELIO CASTRONEVES, NO. 3 PPG AUTOMOTIVE FINISH TEAM PENSKE CHEVROLET, FINISHED 2ND: "Yeah, first congratulations to Sebastien and KV Racing. He certainly didn’t win that many championships by staying out there, so great job. But when Saavedra came between us I knew it was a little bit of a game there. This place, because it’s so narrow in the straightaways and even in the corners, what happens is the air is affecting you. Even if a guy is starting five cars away from you, six cars away, it’s still affecting you - especially near the end of a stint when the tires are old. So I started sliding around, and I said that you have to know sometimes when to take one step back so that we can move forward to the next race, and that is what we did."

TONY KANAAN, NO. 10 TARGET CHIP GANASSI RACING CHEVROLET, FINISHED 3RD: "It was a tough race obviously and I think Bourdais was in a class of his own and we really didn’t have anything for him. I tried to battle Helio and Hunter-Reay for the podium and actually Pagenaud too there in the end. Overall a podium is a good result and I have to thank Chevy and Target for all the support and the opportunity."

SCOTT DIXON, NO. 9 TARGET CHIP GANASSI RACING CHEVROLET, FINISHED 6TH: "It wasn’t too bad of a race for the Target team. We gained a few spots there at the beginning but the car was very loose and we tried to make a change to help it in the one stop that we had. I don’t think we were aggressive enough on the change but it was ok for the first five or 10 laps and then we struggled with the rear tires. Overall third and fifth isn’t bad for Team Target."


WILL POWER, NO. 12 VERIZON TEAM PENSKE CHEVROLET, FINISHED 9TH: > "The Verizon Chevy car was good today and it was a good finish for Race #1. There was a lot of good racing going on everywhere. It'll be exciting to see what happens in Race #2. We just want to finish closer to the front."


MIKE CONWAY, NO. 20 FUZZY’S ULTRA PREMIUM VODKA ED CARPENTER RACING, FINISHED 15TH: "We were just saving a lot of fuel from the midway of the race to the end. And you are looking in your mirrors a lot, making sure you don’t get overtaken. I did make it to the end and did overtake some people. Then on my last move on the last lap, I tried to get by (Jack) Hawksworth (for 13th) into turn three and I got hung out to dry. Then (Carlos) Huertas stuck his nose inside at turn five and I couldn’t hold him off. I think our pace is a little better in the race and especially with reds (Firestone tires). Rubber is going down now on the surface for the second race so maybe the car will come to us better. At the start, I meant to stop and not hit Simon (Pagenaud) but the car spun around. I didn’t hit anything. But I stalled the engine and I had to wait to have the safety team to restart me. That put us towards the back then."

JUAN PABLO MONTOYA, NO. 2 HAWK TEAM PENSKE CHEVROLET, FINISHED 18TH: I made a mistake staying on red tires and the tires just went away. When you're competing there's nothing you can do but just get out of the way. But we will just look forward to Race #2 and go for it again with hopes for a better finish for the Hawk Chevrolet."
