Justin qualifies 3rd for Grand Prix of Cleveland

Justin was 3rd fastest in final qualifying for Sunday's Grand Prix of Cleveland with a time of 56.651 seconds (133.830 mph). A.J. Allmendinger grabbed pole for Forsythe, beating Jimmy Vasser's 1998 lap record with a time of 56.283 (134.705 mph), while Sebastien Bourdais was 2nd fastest with a 56.638. Justin's RuSPORT team-mate Cristiano da Matta set the 9th fastest time with a 57.570.

Justin lines up on row 2 for the race, alongside PKV's Oriol Servia. Turn 1 at Cleveland is rarely without incident, but Justin is hoping for a clean start and a competitive race. "I'm very pleased to be third quickest today", said Justin. "I'd have liked to have been quicker, but we've got a little bit more work to do to find some more speed. But it gives us a good starting position for tomorrow. We're around our main competitors, so hopefully the CDW team can have a good, strong race and be on top of the podium tomorrow."
