EXCITED FOR INAUGURAL GRAND PRIX OF INDIANAPOLIS

INDIANAPOLIS, IN - May 7, 2014 - KV AFS Racing driver Sebastian Saavedra is excited about the inaugural Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the newly re-designed road course at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, in Speedway, Indiana.

Having tested the No. 17 KV AFS Racing Chevrolet/Dallara/Firestone machine on the 2.439 mile, 14-turn track last week, Saavedra feels confident that he can continue the solid performances he has had leading up to this new event.Commenting on the upcoming race, Saavedra said, "I am definitely quite excited about the Grand Prix of Indianapolis this weekend. We don't have a track like this on the schedule so it's definitely a plus for IndyCar and the fans. It's a very different track, so every driver has to adapt. The track itself is very smooth, it has more of a European style to it with the introduction of tight corners but still making sure there are lots of passing zones. It will be quite technical, every little mistake will be seen by our times and speed, but it's definitely going to be a fun race to watch."

Sebastian Saavedra led his first Indycar laps at Long Beach two weeks ago. Despite stalling at the start from 22nd, an off sequence pit stop and flying debris injuring his left thumb, the young Colombian found his way to the front of the field where he led for three laps. Unfortunately with 10 to go, Saavedra established a mechanical problem, which meant he had to nurse the car home to ninth, but still gained a total of 23 places. He now sits 10th in the championship standings with 42 points. 

Saavedra is entering his fifth Verizon IndyCar Series season.
