GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma - Aug 23-24, 2014
Sebastien Bourdais will be looking for another strong performance on a road/street circuit this weekend in Sonoma.

So far this year he has earned seven top-10 finishes including five top-five showings, two podium performances with the one win.

"The Hydroxycut - KVSH Racing team had two good tests at Sonoma earlier this year, so hopefully we will have a good baseline setup coming into this weekend. We have had good pace on the road and street circuits this year and had some very good results recently. There are just two races left in the season and we have a chance to move up in the standings and finish the season strong. Sonoma is a home race for Kevin and Jimmy (KV Racing Technology co-owners and KVSH Racing partners, Kevin Kalkhoven and Jimmy Vasser) plus we will have a lot of sponsors attending the race, so the whole team is looking forward to have a good race this weekend."

• Bourdais will drive the No. 11 Team HYDROXYCUT - KVSH Racing Chevrolet/Dallara/Firestone car at Sonoma Raceway.
• The 2014 GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma will be Bourdais' 130th Verizon IndyCar Series start, 17th with KVSH Racing and fourth at Sonoma Raceway.
• In three previous starts at Sonoma, Bourdais has a best finish of sixth (2011) and a best start of third in 2012.
• Bourdais is contesting his ninth Verizon IndyCar Series season (Champ Car, 5: IndyCar, 4).
• In 129 career Verizon IndyCar Series starts, Bourdais has won 32 races placing him eighth on the all-time list and earned 33 pole positions, tied for seventh all-time.
• Bourdais is the only driver to win four consecutive championships, taking the Champ Car World Series title in 2004 - 2007.
• Bourdais contested 27 Formula One races (2008-2009)
• Bourdais, 35, is a native of Le Mans, France but resides in St. Petersburg, Florida.

SEBASTIAN SAAVEDRA

NO. 17 AUTOMATIC FIRE SPRINKLERS, INC. - KV AFS RACING CHEVROLET/DALLARA/FIRESTONE

GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma - Aug 23-24, 2014
KV AFS Racing's Sebastian Saavedra heads to Sonoma this weekend for the final road/street course race of the 2014 Verizon IndyCar Series season hoping to have the same fantastic run he experienced earlier this month at Mid-Ohio. He is coming of a disappointing weekend at Milwaukee which saw him finish 18th and currently sits 21st in the standings with 251 points.

"I can't believe Sonoma will be our penultimate race of the year. It has gone so quickly, but is definitely a fun track to end the road/street course season with. The track itself is very physical and challenging with the elevation changes, which makes it tricky to setup, but we had a reasonably good test there earlier in the year, so I believe we will have good baseline setup and will find the pace needed to have the kind of result we deserve in the Automatic Fire Sprinklers - KV AFS Racing car this weekend."

• Saavedra is in his fifth Verizon IndyCar Series season.
• The 2014 GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma will be Saavedra's 55th Verizon IndyCar Series start, 35th on a road/street course, 17th with KV AFS Racing and fourth at Sonoma Raceway.
• In 54 career Verizon IndyCar Series starts, Saavedra has earned three top-10 finishes with a best finish of eighth at Baltimore last year.
• In 34 previous road/street course starts, Saavedra has a career best finish of eighth at Baltimore in 2013. His best qualifying was at the inaugural Grand Prix of Indianapolis this year where he earned his first IndyCar career pole.
• Saavedra has an oval career best finish of 13th at Milwaukee last year.
• Saavedra, 24, is a native of Bogota, Columbia. He currently resides in Indianapolis, Indiana.
