"For us it has been a bit of a drought and I've heard the comments made by some of our previous drivers about the team's desire and commitment. What it boils down to is having the right guy in the driver's seat. [Ryan] elevated the performance of the team immediately and he's just gotten better and better.” – Bobby Rahal, insinuating that former RLR drivers Buddy Rice, Vitor Meira, Danica Patrick, Jeff Simmons, Scott Sharp, and the late Paul Dana are collectively a pile of stinky poo compared to Ryan Hunter-Reay.
“This is vindication. Some guys who have driven for us in the past said this team doesn’t have the will to win. It’s all about having the right driver.” – Again it's Bobby Rahal, choosing not to take the high road after his team’s first win in four years.
