KVSH Racing’s Sebastien Bourdais started Sunday’s Iowa Corn 300 at Iowa Speedway from 16th place on the grid in the No.11 Team Hydroxycut Chevrolet and came through the field to finish the race in eighth place just ahead of Schmidt Peterson Motorsports James Hinchcliffe and speaking following the race Bourdais commented by saying:
It was a very average day although the result was pretty decent considering we started 16th. The Hydroxycut – Chevy machine was way too slow. We went conservative on the downforce and had way more downforce than anyone else. Overall we just weren’t competitive pace wise. We got a little lucky, although we created some of our luck. We stayed out late on many stints, which was the result of running a lot of downforce so we were taking pretty good care of the tires. We were getting passed early, but we passed a couple of cars toward the end of the runs. There was just no speed in the car, which is always frustrating when you are behind the wheel. On top of that I stalled the car on the last pit stop. I am not quite sure what happened there. So it was just a tough day at the office, but the Hydroxycut – KVSH guys did a good job and we got some decent points.
