"This weekend wasn't the way I wanted it to go, to be honest; but practice was good. I did my first street race as well so I didn't know what to expect. In the end, the qualifying sessions weren't great. It wasn't the weekend we planned. I finished ninth in the final race, but in the first race I had a good start and had a guy collide with me in turn five. In the second race, had a good start as well and then they red-flagged the race because of the start then on the next restart it was another poor start. Basically, it wasn't the way I wanted to start my Mazda Road to Indy career. I just want to thank everyone back in Brazil for their support. It wasn't an easy process in signing to race with the team and race in America and thank you to everyone that helped me to be here."

“It was a great first weekend competing in the Pro Mazda Championship. Obviously, I didn’t achieve the results that I wanted or the team wanted but it was a great learning experience racing against the Pro Mazda field. I want to thank Prisma, my family and Team Pelfrey for believing in me and supporting me and my dreams. I’m looking forward to getting back in the car soon and fighting for better results!”


Sting Ray Robb (No. 82 Trademark Dental / Munk Family Dental /

  • Qualifying Two: 4th
  • Race One: 6th
  • Race Two: 4th
"It was good; I think we have room to improve, always, but definitely looking back at the video from yesterday and today we know where I can be better as a driver and it's a big learning year for me, as I haven't had this race craft experience and car experience. Race by race, we're going to improve and I think if we maintain consistency, we'll be fine. I can't thank the Team Pelfrey guys enough, they've worked hard these past couple days putting cars back together and getting things ready to go along with, Trademark Dental, Munk Family Dental and everyone else out there who's been cheering for me."
