Zach Veach, No. 26 RePLAY XD

  • Stockdale, OH native captured his seventh podium of the season in second place during Race Two 

"I'm just really happy! We came from a little behind yesterday and finished in fourth. We changed a lot of the car, and my RePLAY XD guys did a heck of a job; my car was perfect for me. I'm very happy to take home second place. This is my first podium in Ohio, my home state, so I'm really happy about that. We just have to keep pushing from here and go win in Milwaukee."


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

  • American racer's bad luck continued when his left rear tire was cut at the start of the race forcing contact with a competitor and ending his day before turning a lap

"I got a really good start, and I was coming down the straight (when the incident happened); it felt like the wind at first. The car was going sideways down the straight and it was moving all over the place, then when I got into Turn 1, as soon as I hit the brakes, the whole rear end of the car just bottomed out. It felt like I just had no grip at the rear - I just spun; I'm sorry for (collecting Luiz) Razia. My tire was gone before I got to the corner, and I couldn't brake the car - everything was locking up. I'm not sure what happened behind me at the start... I think we were all pretty closely bunched there. Maybe I caught a little bit of a hit from behind? It's just disappointing we weren't able to go out and show what the United Fiber & Data/MAZDASPEED team was capable of."
