KVSH Racing’s Sebastien Bourdais heads to the Firestone 600 at Texas Motor Speedway off the back of his strongest oval result of the season last time out at Pocono.
At the ABC Supply 500 on Monday, Bourdais finished the race in 5th place and will be hoping he can carry that momentum forward to Saturday’s race at Texas Motor Speedway. The Frenchman will restart the race from 11th place.
Speaking following Monday’s race, Bourdais commented by saying:
It was a pretty good day for the Hydroxycut – KVSH Racing Team. We took some penalties with long pit stops to set the car up early on, but even though we were marginal on front grip we were running a pretty solid race. We passed Dixie (Scott Dixon), passed (Tony) Kanaan, passed some Penskes, not the top one, but when you do that, things are going pretty good. Then you end up finishing fifth after there was some computer confusion about our position on the restart. Overall, you have to consider that it was a great day. It was definitely our strongest showing on a super speedway. We learned something this weekend, something we have been missing. The crew did a really good job and the Hydroxycut Chevy machine was really strong. So I am really happy with the result.
