Barrichello first start in Detroit

Rubens Barrichello, piloting the No. 8 BMC | EMBRASE – KV Racing Technology Chevrolet/Firestone machine, is coming off a strong 11th place showing in his debut at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway which earned him Chase Rookie of the Year honors.  Even more impressive was the fact that the 40-year-old Brazilian, who spent the last 19 years competing in Formula One, was contesting his first oval race.  Despite his longevity in Formula One, 322 starts, the most of any driver, this will be his first start in Detroit (Formula One competed here 1982-1988). Barrichello opened his first IndyCar season with a 17th  place finish on the streets of St. Petersburg, then put together three consecutive top-10 finishes (Barber, eighth; Long Beach, ninth; Brazil, 10th) before the Indy 500.  He currently sits 11th in the championship standings with 102 points,

Commenting on racing in Detroit, Barrichello said, "I was in Detroit last week and I got to see the track then.  The layout looks great and I can't wait to drive on Friday.  I have also been watching the DVDs for the 2007 and 2008 races, which gave me some information about lines and overtaking possibilities.  I am hoping the weather is good and I can learn the track fast so I can be flat out as soon as possible."
