FIRESTONE INDY LIGHTS POST PRACTICE QUOTES:
JACK HAWKSWORTH (No. 77 Schmidt Peterson Motorsports c/w Curb Agajanian): “With Star Mazda we went out at nine in the morning, and to be honest it was a bit of a waste of time, it was that dirty. But this afternoon, and man the track was in great condition. As soon as we rolled out there was rubber on the circuit, track felt good and we went out and did some work." (About changes he made during the session): “Not many, just a couple of little tweaks. We didn’t want to get too far away from what we know works, we were pretty comfortable with the car straight off the truck. It felt pretty good. So there were a couple things with the balance which I wanted to change. There’s just so many tricks to this place. It’s so bumpy, there’s a lot of different asphalt and stuff, so you’re kind of tuning the car around the different aspects of the circuit, so we just tweaked things and kind of massaged the car a bit. And now we’ll go back and share what we’ve done and work overnight. It’s great to have a break now in between today and tomorrow because there’s a lot of information to look at and a lot of things to think about before we go stick on the line in qualifying."

CARLOS MUNOZ (No. 26 Dialy-Ser/Andretti Autosport): “Today’s practice seemed quite short. We didn’t have much time on track, but I feel good. I think we have to improve a little bit… we’ll make a couple changes overnight. It’s only the beginning of the weekend, and we still have one more practice for qualifying tomorrow, so we have to work hard and start the weekend off the right way."

SAGE KARAM (No. 8 Schmidt Peterson Motorsports c/w Curb Agajanian): “It wasn't a bad session for us. Our teammate Jack (Hawksworth) is very fast so we've just got to go back to the debrief room and figure some things out. I was having an issue with locking up the brakes. I just couldn't hit the brake pedal at all which really affected my lap times. So we'll go back to the transporters and figure things out so that we come back really strong tomorrow."
