IT'S CHAMPIONSHIP OR BUST FOR PRIMETIME, FEINBERG
Expectations high for team in new LMPC class for 2010

Joel Feinberg doesn't even bat an eye when asked about his goal for the 2010 American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patron - "Win races...that's it."

Feinberg and the newly minted Primetime Braille Battery Racing Team are part of the first Le Mans Prototype Challenge field in Series history and will take the green flag at next weekend's 58th Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring presented by Fresh from Florida.

Feinberg will team with Kyle Marcelli in Primetime's ORECA FLM09 prototype, a move up from the Series' GT2 class the last three years with a Dodge Viper Competition Coupe. The two teammates were rivals in last year's IMSA Lites series in which Feinberg won the championship and Marcelli won twice in the final three races.

"We're here to win the championship. That's the only goal right now for myself coming off the IMSA Lites championship," Feinberg said. "Kyle has aspirations of being the youngest (Series) champion at just 19 years old. We're definitely taking the aggressive approach but it will still be a methodical one.

"Kyle's a great guy. We raced most of last year against each other. He's a really talented young driver and very easy to work with. We have a lot of the same driving style and personality. We're a closer driver combination than pretty much anyone else in the class."

The American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patron will open its 12th season with America's greatest sports car race, the 58th Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring presented by Fresh from Florida from March 17-20. The green flag will fall at 10:30 a.m. ET on Saturday, March 20 with live coverage on SPEED starting at 10 a.m. ET. Live coverage also will be available on American Le Mans Radio, as well as Sirius Channel 127 and XM Channel 245. Visit the Series' schedule page for ticket and accommodation information. Live Timing and Scoring, track schedule, entry list and much, much more will be available on Racehub at americanlemans.com.
