KVSH Racing’s Sebastien Bourdais endured a tough qualifying session for Sunday’s ABC Supply 500 at Pocono Raceway.
The Frenchman who drives the No.11 Team Hydroxycut Chevrolet will start the race from 18th place after setting a two lap qualifying average speed of 216.263mph and speaking following the session he commented by saying:
I knew qualifying would be tough, but it turned out to be quite a bit harder than I expected. The Hydroxycut machine started with a big understeer, so I backed down on the tools. Then as soon as I got to turn one the car was loose. The rest of the run I just kept going between understeer and oversteer. I could never get the balance right in any of the corners. Basically no grip just sliding around. The track temp went up about 20 degrees from this morning and we don’t seem to deal with that very well. It is double difficult when you don’t go testing, but we will try and put on a better showing in the race tomorrow.
