Driving the No. 17 KV AFS Racing Chevrolet/Dallara/Firestone machine, Saavedra will be making his third IndyCar start on the 2.38-mile, 17 turn road course. In his two previous races, Saavedra has a best starting position of ninth and a best finish of 20th, both earned last year.

The 23-year-old climbed an impressive 23 positions at Long Beach two weeks ago to record his first top-10 finish of the season and currently sits 10th in the championship standings with 42 points.

A graduate of the Indy Lights Series, the young Colombian has seen success here. While racing in the junior series, he finished third in 2010 and then won the race from pole in 2012.

Commenting on this upcoming weekend, Saavedra said, "It's been an aggressive start of the season and we've been able to survive it with good points in the bank. We need to keep with the top-10 drivers in the championship. Barber is a place I had a good qualifying last year and a bad strategy killed a good finish. We need to keep up the good work and get to May with great vibes and a good position to fight the championship from."

Born in Bogotá, Colombia, Saavedra has been among the youngest drivers in nearly every series he has competed in. He joined the Firestone Indy Lights just before his 19th birthday and that year was awarded Rookie of the Year Honors with AFS Racing/Andretti Autosport. He moved to Bryan Herta Autosport for 2010 where he made his Indianapolis 500 debut becoming the third Colombian driver to do so. Saavedra then stepped up to the IndyCar Series in 2011 with Conquest Racing before returning to Indy Lights in 2012. Last

year he spent the entire season back in IndyCar with Dragon Racing.

The Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama takes place April 25-27 on NBC Sports Network at 2:30 p.m. ET.
