|Sebastien Bourdais starts today's race on the Firestone 'Blacks'.|
Once again, we are seeing the field overwhelmingly opt to begin the race on the alternate Firestone 'Red' tires. Only two drivers, Sebastien Bourdais and Charlie Kimball, have elected to start today's race on the primary 'Blacks'. The rest of the field will start on 'Reds'.
Bourdais will roll off in the fifth grid position. Kimball starts 19th.
