INDIANAPOLIS (August 26, 2003) -- The most recent winner on the Bridgestone Presents The Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford tour Michel Jourdain Jr. (#9 Gigante/Centrix Financial Ford-Cosworth/Lola/Bridgestone) will headline tomorrow night's edition of SPEED Channel's daily racing show Wind Tunnel hosted by Dave Despain (9:00 -- 10:00 p.m. ET).

The 26-year-old Mexican will join Despain live via satellite from the Centrix Financial corporate headquarters in Denver, Colorado for the motorsports talk show to discuss his second win of the season last weekend at the Molson Indy Montreal in Canada. Centrix Financial is the title sponsor of this year's Grand Prix of Denver and Jourdain will carry the company's livery this weekend along with primary sponsor Gigante.

Jourdain is enjoying a very successful 2003 campaign which has seen the eight-year Champ Car veteran record his first two career wins. The Team Rahal pilot is third in championship points behind Bruno Junqueira (#1 PacifiCare Ford-Cosworth/Lola/Bridgestone) of Newman/Haas Racing and points leader Paul Tracy (#3 Player's/Indeck Ford-Cosworth/Lola/Bridgestone) of Player's/Forsythe Racing heading into Denver this weekend.

Watch Jourdain and the rest of the Champ Car drivers in action this Sunday during SPEED Channel's 9:00 p.m. ET (tape-delayed) broadcast of the Centrix Financial Grand Prix of Denver.
