"I'm extremely excited to be making it back to Ohio for my home race! We made a lot of progress and some changes from what we learned at Toronto, and we're looking forward to putting them to good useThursday when we get to test on the track. It's crunch time for the championship and we're ready to make every lap count!"

Matthew Brabham, No. 83 United Fiber & Data/MAZDASPEED
• Turned laps in Andretti's Formula E car over the week off at Donington Park in the UK
• Third-generation racer captured two pole positions and two wins on the 2.25-mile permanent road course in 2013 (Pro Mazda)

"Mid-Ohio is a really sweet track; the elevation changes make it a very challenging and fun track to drive on. We struggled a little pace-wise at the previous test day there, but I know we can come back strong and be fighting for the race wins. I know the track really well and won two races there last year. Our season is coming to an end very quickly, and I'm just focusing on race wins."


Shelby Blackstock, No. 28 Starstruck
• Captured a podium finish (third) at Indianapolis Motor Speedway last week in his sports car ride
• Recorded a podium and two top-four finishes at the Ohio track in 2013
• Currently lies fourth in the Pro Mazda championship

"I'm excited to get back in the No. 28 Starstruck Pro Mazda at Mid-Ohio this weekend. Coming off a good race at Indy in the CTSCC with the team's double podium, I hope the momentum continues and hopefully get on the top step. Mid-Ohio is one of my favorite tracks and always brings great racing. Can't wait to start the weekend!"

Garett Grist, No. 27 DaVinci Foods/Lander Property Management
• Acquired his first USF2000 win at the 13-turn circuit in 2013
• Momentum is rolling from the Canadian's two pole positions at the Grand Prix of Houston
• Begins the doubleheader weekend sixth in the championship points fight

"I'm looking forward to Mid-Ohio this coming weekend for our doubleheader; it's where we got our first USF2000 win last year during our tripleheader. This year we have some good momentum going after our oval win and then capturing double pole positions in Houston. Unfortunately in Houston, the race results didn't come, but we now now why that happened, and hopefully at Mid-Ohio we can get a few more poles to make it five in a row and add some wins to that. Big thank you to Lander Property Mangement, DaVinci Foods, Sofina Foods, Bell Helmets and the whole team for all their continued support."
