KV AFS RACING SEBASTIAN SAAVEDRA QUALIFIES FOR THE 2014 INDIANAPOLIS 500
INDIANAPOLIS, IN - May 18, 2014 - KV AFS Racing Sebastian Saavedra has qualified for the 98th running of the Indianapolis 500, May 25, at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis, IN.
Under the new 2014 Indy 500 qualifying format, Saavedra was assured a spot in the race after yesterday's first round of qualifying when he placed his No. 17 KV AFS Racing car 26th on the speed charts. However, it wasn't until today that he knew where he would be starting.
All times from yesterday were erased and the order for group one was the reverse of Saturday's rankings. Therefore, Saavedra went out eighth for his one qualifying attempt and posted a four lap average of 288.088 mph which puts him 32nd on the grid.
