Garett Grist, No. 7 DaVinci Foods
Garett Grist heads to Mid-Ohio's triple-header with two podium and five top-10 finishes; the 18-year-old Canadian is currently fifth in the USF2000 title fight.

"I am very excited for the upcoming tripleheader at Mid-Ohio. It gives us a great opportunity to get back into the championship hunt after a difficult Toronto weekend. I am a big fan of the track and love the way it races; I think the USF2000 cars will put on a great show. As a team, we have been working hard on setups after the official series test we had there. We have made a lot of improvements and I think we are heading there with a strong car. I hope we can put the No. 7 DaVinci Foods Andretti Autosport car on the top step." 

Austin Cindric, No. 77 Nightrain
Austin Cindric comes to Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course with his best finish of the year during Race Two in Toronto, Ontario in 13th. The 14-year-old plans to continue the momentum of his top-15 finish at the permanent road course.

"After a successful weekend in Toronto, it gives me and the Nightrain Clothing team a lot of momentum heading into Mid-Ohio. I am also especially excited for this race because it holds so much of my family history. I can't wait to get started!"

Luca Forgeois, No. 8 Cafe Noir/Splashlight
The 2011 USF2000 National Champion, Luca Forgeois, joins Andretti Autosport for the tripleheader weekend after a difficult start to the 2013 season.

"I'm really looking forward to getting back in the car after three months. I was having a tough time in the beginning of the season and was having trouble getting back on my feet. Dealing with things off of the track, I was having trouble keeping focused. Due to some unfortunate circumstances, I've been out of the car for a while. I'm extremely grateful for the opportunity handed to me by the Andretti Autosport team. I haven't had the smoothest career path thus far, and have hit a lot of rough patches and it's been quite a bit difficult. So, getting the chance to race with one of the top teams in USF2000 and the overall Mazda Road to Indy is phenomenal. Teams don't often bother giving a driver an opportunity mid-season, so once again I cannot thank the entire Andretti organization enough. I'm really looking forward to getting back in the car and just getting some good results for them."
