Justin proudly received the Greg Moore Legacy Award at the end of season Champ Car Awards Banquet in Indianapolis on Saturday night. The Award, now in its seventh year, is named in honour of the former Indy Lights champion and rising Champ Car star who lost his life during a 1999 racing incident. It is awarded to the driver that most displays the determination, passion and skill that typified Moore's days as a racer.

"I'm very proud and honoured", said Justin. "Although I never got to meet Greg myself, from the races I watched and what people have said he was obviously a great driver and a great guy. It means a lot to receive this award and the recognition that comes with it."

Previous winners of the Greg Moore Legacy Award are Oriol Servia (2005), Ryan Hunter-Reay (2004), Sebastien Bourdais (2003), Patrick Carpentier (2002), Dario Franchitti (2001), and Helio Castroneves (2000).
