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

  • Series rookie is coming off his fourth podium finish (Milwaukee, second)
  • Will roll off the grid for Race One from the fifth position on the 2.385-mile circuit

"It's been a struggle for us the whole time we've been here in Sonoma really. Since we were out on track, we haven't had the pace as the other teams, especially Schmidt - they just seem to have found something that we haven't. We're still looking; I think we made improvements and I think we're headed down the right track. I think we've just not started on the right foot and we've been playing catch-up the whole weekend. I think we've got to go back, review how qualifying went and hopefully we can make the improvements we need for the race and move forward."


Zach Veach, No. 26 RePLAY XD

  • 19-year-old is the latest Indy Lights race winner with the victory at Milwaukee last week
  • Qualified in the seventh position for Race One at Sonoma Raceway

"Overall, today we are a little disappointed. We're coming here to Sonoma after winning Milwaukee, and we definitely need a good qualifying place to keep fighting for the championship. I think we are a little behind on the car; Matt (Brabham) and I are both working extremely hard to get things figured out for tomorrow. Both of us would like to be starting a little further ahead. We've got two races here, so we've just got to chip away at it one day at a time and hopefully we can still take the championship win in the RePLAY XD car."
