KVSH Racing's Bourdais Fifth On Speed Charts After Friday Practice For Honda Indy 200

KVSH Racing driver Sebastien Bourdais was fifth on the combined practice report after today's two practice sessions for the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio on the 2.258-mile, 13-turn Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course permanent road course in Lexington, Ohio.

Bourdais ran his fastest time in the morning session recording a lap of 66.8192 seconds (121.654 mph) placing him fifth on the morning session report. He topped the speed charts in the afternoon session with a lap of 66.8271 seconds (121.639 mph), however only five of the 22 drivers logged fastest laps in the second session.

Sebastien Bourdais quote:
"It was a good day. Believe it or not, this is the first time I've had to come to the press conference here. I didn't know where to go. We had a great weekend (at Toronto) and finally capitalized on all the pace and promises we've had coming into the season. It's great to be at the front at Mid-Ohio. It's a fun place. It's a very challenging track and balance is always the key. You have to hit it just right and gaps are always very minimal. I remember there were eight cars within two tenths when I missed the Fast Six in 2012. It's a track that's very unforgiving and you have to get it right and when you do, it's a lot of fun. The Mistic E-Cigs - KVSH Racing team had a good test last week, but we're still digging. Still looking for stuff and we're getting a lot closer every time we come out. Hopefully we can get it just right tomorrow for qualifying and if the weather cooperates we will see what happens."

• Bourdais is driving the No. 11 Team MISTIC - KVSH Racing Chevrolet/Dallara/Firestone car this weekend at Mid-Ohio.
• The 2014 Honda Indy 200 will be Bourdais' 128th Verizon IndyCar Series start, 15th with KVSH Racing and fifth at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
• In four previous starts at Mid-Ohio, Bourdais has finished in the top-10 three times including two top-five performances with a best showing of fourth in 2012 (fifth in his only Champ Car start at Mid-Ohio in 2003). His best qualifying position is third in 2003.
• Bourdais has started in the top-12 in 10 of 14 races this season, including eight times in the top-10, three top-five efforts and one pole (Toronto Race One).
• Bourdais has qualified in the top-12 nine times on road/street circuits and once on an oval (Iowa, sixth).
• In the seven full road/street qualifying sessions this season, Bourdais has advanced to the second round six out of seven times and made the Firestone Fast Six twice (Toronto and Long Beach). He qualified 11th, fifth and 10th for the second race of the Detroit, Houston and Toronto doubleheaders (respectively) where the qualifying format is just a single round with two groups.
• After the first 14 races of the 2014 Version IndyCar Series season, Bourdais is 10th in the championship standings with 358 points on the strength of six top-10 finishes including four top-five showings with one win (Toronto Race One).
