Sebastian Saavedra back with Conquest for Vegas finale

Conquest Racing announced today that Sebastian Saavedra will return as the driver of the #34 Bogota es Mundial car for the IZOD IndyCar World Championships presented by Honda at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The Colombian driver will be part of a record-breaking 34-car field as the IndyCar teams say goodbye to their current chassis and take them out on the track once more before they are retired and exchanged by the new 2012 cars. The one of a kind event will be the season finale for the series and will take place on October 16th.

The Conquest Racing crew and Saavedra reunite after competing in the first fifteen events of the 2011 Season and will look to close out the year on a high note at the 1.5-mile oval. They will be looking to improve on their best result of the season, which came at the streets of Sao Paolo, Brazil, where they finished 11th. For Saavedra it will be the first time that he races at the Nevada track but the young driver is no stranger to winning on ovals as he took the checkered flag at various tracks in both of his years in the Firestone Indy Lights Series. This year he will be looking to make #34 the lucky number in Las Vegas and give the Conquest crew a top result to finish out the year.
