KVSH Racing’s Sebastien Bourdais secured his best qualifying position of the season so far as he will start the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama at Barber Motorsports Park from fifth place on the grid.
Bourdais in the No.11 Team Hydroxycut Chevrolet has been quick all weekend and a place in the Firestone Fast Six was reward for the great pace of the car.
Speaking following his day in the car, the Frenchman commented by saying:
The car reacted very well on the red Firestone tires. The Europa/Hydroxycut machine did really awesome, and the crew did a great job. We were fast off the truck and didn’t really find anything that made the car better. But we were very worried about the reds because more often than not we are on par with the top guys on blacks, then we put on the reds and we struggle. I’m really happy with the way it turned out and a track record. It’s not a bad thing, but too bad I couldn’t put it together in the Fast Six. We’ll make the most of it tomorrow.
Bourdais starts the race along Graham Rahal in the No.5 PennGrade Motor Oil Honda.
