In a fast Mistic Minute, here are the most recent results from the Mistic Verizon IndyCar team, piloted by the only 4-time series champ Sebastien Bourdais.
Shell and Pennzoil Grand Prix of Houston
The Verizon IndyCar Series stopped in Texas for the Shell and Pennzoil Grand Prix of Houston, a doubleheader over the weekend of June 28-29.
The races took place on a street course set up in the parking lot at Reliant Park, home to the Houston Texans. The Mistic driver won on this course twice back in his Champ car days, and completed the first race of the weekend in 4th place.
The end of race 2 proved taxing, as Bourdais battled Helio Castroneves for his position. Heading into Turn 6, Castroneves went right only to run into Bourdais and the wall.
The Frenchman managed to hold his position for the closing laps with a compromised front wing, as stopping to change it would have cost the KVSH racing team many positions so late in the race.
A group of late-race yellows helped Bourdais hold onto his position; under the green laps, the veteran driver was able to play with the brake balance and hold onto his 5th-place finish to wrap up the weekend.
Pocono INDYCAR 500
Known as "The Tricky Triangle," the Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pennsylvania is famous for its distinctive tri-oval shape.
Still relatively new to ovals, Sebastien Bourdais managed only an 18th starting position with his KVSH Racing Mistic Machine. This is only his 17th start on a oval, but he's well known for his abilities on street and road courses.
The team worked on the car throughout the race, helping Bourdais reach 11th position at one point. He finished the race in 16th position, keeping the former champ in the top 10 in the Verizon IndyCar series championship standings.
The next stop takes the series to Iowa for the Iowa Corn Indy 250, held on Saturday, July 12th.
