2014 Milwaukee: Andretti Autosport Indy Lights Qualifying Recap

Zach Veach, No. 26 RePLAY XD

Series sophomore captured his fourth pole position of the season, earning him one point towards his championship fight This marks the 19-year-old's fifth Indy Lights pole "Overall, I am just very, very thankful for today. The RePLAY XD/Andretti Autosport guys did one heck of a job putting the car under me. We struggled a little bit this morning and threw a lot of things at it going into qualifying and it just stuck. It was a scary ride for two laps, and I don't think I breathed once, but I am just very thankful to get my second pole here at Milwaukee and my first one here in an Indy Lights car."

Matthew Brabham, No. 83 United Fiber & Data/MAZDASPEED

20-year-old will start tomorrow's 100-lap race from the second row in the third position Third-generation driver started from the pole and won here in 2013 for Andretti Autosport's Pro Mazda team "Congratulations to my teammate (Zach Veach on capturing pole). I'm happy; we came a long way since the last practice session, and we made a lot of improvements to the car. In qualifying, it felt great. I would have liked to have been on the front row, for sure. Hopefully I can get a good start tomorrow in the United Fiber & Data/MAZDASPEED car, and we'll see what happens in the race."

Shelby Blackstock, No. 28 Starstruck

Went from seventh to third on the final restart to capture his fifth podium of the season Today's 90-lap race marked the 24-year-old's 12th podium in Pro Mazda "I'm extremely happy - I'm not confident on ovals, and I'm still really learning the oval racing. In the end, I basically had a good run and learned a lot today; that was what I was most happy about. I knew wherever I finished, I was going to take out of it that I learned a ton. I was happy to finish, and luckily, I was in the right place at the right time to get some good opportunities and get on the podium. I'm very, very happy for the No. 28 Starstruck car and so happy for the team for getting a good result after our bad weekend at Mid-Ohio. Just looking forward to Sonoma... we need to get on the top step of the podium to cap off the season in a good way."

Garett Grist, No. 27 Lander Property Management/DaVinci Foods

Rookie was making moves to make his way into the top five when he got into the marbles and made contact with the wall Canadian was shown as placing 12th after retiring on Lap 79 of 90 "We were making our way up, but I'm kind of surprised we made it to Lap 79... I felt as if our car was all over the place. We picked off a few guys to make our way back up to sixth, but then I just got into the marbles, had nowhere to go and hit the wall. It's unfortunate - we could have gotten some good points at least to head to Sonoma. I'm hoping we can bounce back a bit in Sonoma and have a great end to our season."
