KVSH Racing's Sebastien Bourdais Posts Best Indy Finish With Seventh-Place Showing In 98th Running

KVSH Racing driver Sebastien Bourdais drove to his best Indianapolis 500 finish today when he wound up seventh in the race's 98th running at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Bourdais started 17th in the No. 11 HYDROXYCUT/MISTIC E-Cigs - KVSH Racing Chevrolet/Dallara/Firestone machine and essentially held station for the first 135 laps of the 200-lap race. Starting with lap 136, his patience and determination began to pay off as he began to move through the field. He slipped into the top-10 on lap 147 and took advantage of the mistakes of other drivers to grab hold of seventh. During the closing laps of the race, Bourdais tried to improve his position, but simply did not have a strong enough car to finish in the top-five.

"Not a great day, but a good day," Bourdais said. "I am really happy for the Hydroxycut/Mistic E-Cigs crew. We struggled a bit with the car the whole month, but we stuck with it and got the best out of it today. We didn't start in the front so it was a challenge to get there. Overall, it was a strong performance, a good result and we got double points. Now we move on to Detroit."

This is the second consecutive strong performance for Bourdais after struggling, despite fast cars, in the first three races of the 2014 Verizon IndyCar Series season. The talented Frenchman placed fourth two weeks ago in the inaugural Grand Prix of Indianapolis, and had his best finish in four Indy 500 starts today surpassing a 12th-place finish in his Indianapolis 500 debut in 2005. Bourdais earned 62 points today, moving him into eighth in the championship standings with 143 points, just 49 out of fifth.

The 35-year-old native of Le Mans, France, who made 27 Formula One starts, is the only driver to win four consecutive U.S. open-wheel championships (2004-2007). He is eighth all-time in the IndyCar record books with 31 wins, seventh all-time with 31 poles and won the 2014 Rolex 24-Hour sports car race at Daytona.

Next up for KVSH Racing is the Chevrolet Indy Dual in Detroit, May 31 and June 1 at the Raceway at Belle Isle Park in Detroit, Michigan. The race will be broadcast live on ABC beginning at 3:30 p.m. (ET) both days. It can also be heard live on IMS Radio Network affiliates, XM Channel 209, Sirius Channel 213, IndyCar.com, IndyCarradio.com or via the Verizon IndyCar14 app.
