The NTT INDYCAR Series returns to Road America this weekend where Sebastien Bourdais, driving the No. 14 ROKiT Chevrolet, and his teammate Dalton Kellett, in the No. 4 K-Line Insulators USA Chevrolet, will compete against 23 other drivers on the picturesque 4-mile road course.
Sebastien Bourdais on Road America: “Looking forward to Road America, a place that I’ve always very much enjoyed. It’s gotten a lot rougher and harder on tires and it’s a tricky place, but I think if we can get the car in the zone, I think it’s a place where I know I can find my way around. I’m looking forward to the challenge and can’t wait to get to Wisconsin.”
Dalton Kellett on Road America: “Road America is definitely one of the coolest tracks on our schedule and long, four miles. Pretty excited. Lots of big variation corners, really high-commitment, high-speed corners, some cooler low speed stuff, and definitely one of the prettiest tracks that we go to. It’s a classic American road course — so super excited. We’ve gotten better and better with our cars on road courses this year and I feel like I’m learning every weekend, so definitely looking forward to it.”
Past Performance: Sebastien Bourdais’ best start is from the pole with Newman-Haas Racing in 2007, the year he won.

Recently, his best start is sixth in 2018 (Dale Coyne with Vasser-Sullivan) and best finish is 12th in 2019 with the same team. Dalton Kellett made two starts as a rookie in 2020, starting 23rd and finishing 20th in both races.
