NWR continues preparation for 2009 campaign

Markus Niemela and his NWR - Nuclear Energy - Mr. Jones teammates continued preparing for the coming American Le Mans Series - Larry H. Miller Dealerships Utah Grand Prix May 15-17. After a limited one day test at Palm Beach International earlier in the month, the team moved West and set up shop at Putnam Park outside of Indianapolis to continue with their development.

"It's good to be testing again because my contract was completed so late in the off-season, and right before Sebring, so I was still a bit unconfortable in the car. The dual tests this month are a perfect chance to finalize gelling with the team. And as usual its great to be back in the car. I love working with our crew at NWR and look forward for the next event."

The 2009 American Le Mans Series - Larry H. Miller Dealerships Utah Grand Prix will be run at Miller Motorsports Park outside Toole Utah. The circuit is a 3.06 mile long natural road course. This year, along with the Atlantic regulars, the event will showcase ALMS, Formula BMW Americas, Volkswagen Jetta TDI Cup, the STAR Mazda Championship presented by Goodyear, the Patron GT3 Challenge by Yokohama and the IMSA Lites presented by Frisby Performance Tire. By winning last year's race Markus Niemela became the first ever Atlantic winner of the race held in Miller Motorsport Park.
