KV AFS Racing Team Notes Going Into Pocono

Submitted by on Wednesday, 02 July 2014 14:23

KV AFS Racing's Sebastian Saavedra returns to oval racing after a long weekend on the streets of Houston. In Race 1 he was looking to secure a top-five finish but with five laps to go was punted in the rear, causing him to spin and end up 15th. A mechanical issue before the start of Race 2 resulted in him joining the race six laps down and only able to move through the field when other drivers crashed out. Saavedra sits 21st in the standings with 166 points. 

Saavedra is entering his fifth Verizon IndyCar Series season.

The 2014 Pocono INDYCAR 500 will be Saavedra's 49th Verizon IndyCar Series start, 19th on an oval, 11th with KV AFS and second at Pocono Raceway.

In 48 career Verizon IndyCar Series starts, Saavedra has earned three top-10 finishes with a best finish of eighth last year. 

In 18 previous oval starts, Saavedra has a career best finish of 13th and a best start of sixth both at Milwaukee last year.

Saavedra's best road/street course qualifying was at the inaugural Grand Prix of Indianapolis this year where he earned his first IndyCar career pole. His best finish is eighth at Baltimore last year.

Saavedra, 24, is a native of Bogota, Columbia. He currently resides in Indianapolis, Indiana.
