This is Daniel’s first win in the Firestone Indy Lights series and Bryan Herta Autosport’s first win as a team. Daniel moves to 6th place in the championship -138 points behind the leader and now winner of the 2009 Firestone Indy Lights Series J. R. Hildebrand.

Qualifying Position: 9th

On race:
“Finally. We’ve had a rough couple of races in the middle of the season. At the beginning of the year, Bryan (Herta) told us we would win a race. We didn’t think it would be this late in the season before we won a race. It sure is nice to get that win. Teamwork with James Davison at the end certainly helped make a different in the final laps. I’m really happy for the Le Bleu crew. The’ve done such a great job all year and finally have something to show for it. I am really looking forward to the final race of the season at Homestead.”

On win:
“It’s unbelievable. It feels great. Actually, it feels just like winning as a driver. I’m so excited about Daniel (Herrington) getting his first win and getting him in victory lane. The way it worked, it was exactly how our program is set up between Vision Racing and BHA (Bryan Herta Autosport), a technical partnership working together. Out on the track, those guys worked so well together. James (Davison) helped us out a lot. It’s just a great result and a great feeling.”
