THE MODERATOR: Michael, thank you for joining us. Two in a row, momentum is certainly with your team right now.
MICHAEL ANDRETTI: Awesome, I'll tell you, it was a great day. I'm so happy for Ryan. He did a great job, and so happy for the whole team because all three cars are running really well. I think the only bummer was four hitting the wall there; if that wouldn't have happened, I think we would have had a shot at a 1, 2, 3. To come away with a 1, 2 two, after the unbelievable weekend we had last weekend is fantastic, and now that really puts us in with Ryan, as well, for a championship.
Q. Marco pretty much said that this was a statement race and it shows that you guys are the team to beat. How do you feel about that?
MICHAEL ANDRETTI: Well, I hope that's right. You know, I think we have been competitive all year, and we have been knocking on the door, and finally to break through the last two weekends has been great.
Now hopefully we can carry this momentum for the rest of the year, and like I said, I think we have two guys in a serious fight for the championship, which is, you know, great odds for us to have two guys up there. So real happy about that.
Q. Make you nervous having your teammates battling for the lead there at the end?
MICHAEL ANDRETTI: Always. When you see‑‑ at one point all three of them are right together, and I'm like, oh, boy. You're always holding your breath watching it.
But they all really take care of each other, like each other and I knew they were not going to do anything stupid.
