Dale Coyne Racing’s Sebastien Bourdais in the No.18 Unifin Honda started Saturday night’s Bommarito Automotive Group 500 at Gateway Motorsports Park, his first race back following his accident at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway finished the race in 10th place.

The Frenchman started the race from 19th place and came through the field to finish the event in the top ten.

Speaking following the race he commented by saying:

It wasn’t an easy race. We knew the car wasn’t perfect and I had some really complicated restarts. I don’t know what was going on but I got loose three times and I almost stuffed it and so I went to the back of the pack. The guys did a really good job in the pits and got us back in contention there at the end. I finally had a good restart and a couple of wobbles in front of me and I benefitted from it. I’m just really happy with my top 10. It’s a good way to salvage something this weekend.

Ed Jones in the No.19 Boy Scouts of America Honda started the race from 12th place and finished the race in 13th.

Speaking following the race he commented by saying:

“It was a tough race. We had a lot of downforce on the car. Earlier on in the race we were alright but as the race went on the pace of the car wasn’t quick enough to move forward so it was a bit frustrating. I did have some good battles early on. It’s just a shame that I didn’t have the speed at the end. It’s a great event. Everything, the way that the organization has done it, is right. It was great to see all these fans come out and support us.”
