* The RuSPORT team comes into the Las Vegas Motor Speedway race still in contention for a top three finish in the Champ Car World Series Championship with AJ Allmendinger in fifth place in the championship and Justin Wilson in fourth.

* Both drivers fared reasonably well at Las Vegas in 2004 with Allmendinger starting seventh and finishing sixth last year and Wilson starting 15th and finishing eighth.

* The RuSPORT drivers and team are only in their second season of Champ Car competition. Wilson and Allmendinger have each captured their first career pole positions this season along with two all-RuSPORT front rows. Justin also earned his first Champ Car victory in Toronto and AJ was on his way to his first win in Edmonton, leading a dominating 40 laps, when contact ended his day with only eight laps to go.

* On the previous oval track race this season at the Milwaukee Mile, Allmendinger started second and finished second while Wilson started third and finished fourth.
