2014 Barber Park: KVSH Racing IndyCar Race Preview


Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama - April 25-27, 2014

Sebastien Bourdais is coming off a frustrating weekend at Long Beach two weeks ago. The four-time series champion started the race in third and moved to second shortly after the green flag. However a couple of mistakes and a drive through penalty saw him move towards the back of the grid and eventually Bourdais finished 14th. He now lies 15th in the championship standings with 33 points.

Despite stalling at the start from 22nd, an off sequence pit stop and flying debris injuring his left thumb, the young Colombian found his way to the front of the field where he led for three laps.
