Team Notes

By Kevin Diamond

 

KV AFS Racing's Sebastian Saavedra will be making his 50th IndyCar career start this weekend at the Iowa Corn Indy 300. Last weekend at Pocono, he tied his oval career best finish of 15th and picked up 30 points to now sit 20th in the standings with 196 points.

 

"We have been struggling on ovals, but Iowa seems to be a good place for the team as past history as shown. I'm looking forward to a good weekend as I have good history there also with a win in Indy Lights in 2010, so hopefully we can repeat that in the Automatic Fire Sprinklers, Inc. - KV AFS Racing car this weekend and earn some points towards the championship."
