Justin to drive on Friday after positive test

Justin has decided to participate in Friday's full practice session in Mexico City after a successful 10 lap run on Thursday. The objective of the brief test was to see how he would cope with various wrist supports following the fracture to the scaphoid bone in his right wrist at Surfers Paradise.

"I tried out the #9 CDW car this morning and everything seemed to go quite well with my wrist," said Justin. "We tested a couple of different wrist braces and positions and were even able to complete a lap without the brace. We now have some ideas for tomorrow and I'm ready to give it another go."

Dr. Chris Pinderski, Champ Car World Series Medical Director stated, "I examined Justin after his short test this morning and at this point I am confident that his wrist is well enough to participate in competition this weekend. He will, however, be re-examined after every test and practice session to determine the health of his wrist."
