Sebastien Bourdais will run three TUDOR United SportCar Championship events next season, as the third driver for the Action Express Racing team and its Corvette Daytona Prototype.
Bourdais recently signed a contract with KVSH Racing as the driver of the 11 machine vacated by Tony Kanaan in the IndyCar ranks.
His move to Action Express Racing seemed fitting considering he will be representing Chevrolet in both series, and the endurance rounds of the new series do no interfere with his IndyCar obligations.
A good number of IndyCar drivers dip into the North American Endurance scene, with many of Chip Ganassi’s regulars get called on for the big races. Names like A.J. Allmendinger, Paul Tracy, Charlie Kimball, James Hinchcliffe among others are commonly drafted to take the wheel in the American sports car ranks.
