Motorsports director for Mazda's North American operations John Doonan said that Mazda and diesel technology have made history: "While this is our fifth win of the season, and fifth in a row, it is by far the biggest win to date. To win at Indy is every racers dream and that dream came true for Mazda here today".

The winning driver Sylvain Tremblay also praised the Mazda team for their calm and concentration throughout the race: "It was not an easy day but the team remained focused and we came through for the win. To score the first ever win for a diesel at Indy, in our first year with the program, speaks volumes for Mazda and our team".
