      "There are a lot of unknowns going into Detroit. It’s the first time any driver in our field has driven the street course and it’s the first time the IL-15 has competed here. The fact that our Andretti Autosport Indy Lights crew can overlay the many years of experience the team has racing in Detroit in INDYCAR should give us an advantage. Regardless, it will be an extremely enjoyable weekend being right against the walls."

          "I am looking forward to Detroit and happy to put the Indy GP behind us. We’ve done a lot of preparations for the races at Belle Isle. It’s a famous race and I’ve always wanted to race there. I think the Andretti Steinbrenner team has a great shot. It’s going to be about rolling off the truck, making no mistakes, and being in good shape and pushing everything to the limit because there isn’t much time before qualifying. I’m really excited as it will be a ‘balls-to-the-wall’ weekend."

              "I’m really excited heading into my first ever time at Detroit. I love new tracks. I love street circuits and the track looks like an absolute blast to drive. I know we’ve figured a lot out since the Indy GP, and I think we’re going to have a great weekend with a lot more potential to be up front."
