Justin looks forward to Chicagoland

With just three events remaining on the 2009 IndyCar Series schedule, Justin and Dale Coyne Racing return to oval racing in Saturday night's Peak Antifreeze and Motor Oil Indy 300 at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Illinois. A year ago Justin came through the field from 21st to finish 11th and, as 1.5 mile ovals go, it's one of his clear favourites. He and the team are hopeful that the data gathered at other oval events this year will stand them in good stead at Chicagoland.

"I'm really looking forward to this weekend at Chicagoland," said Justin. "It's a great track for the drivers and the fans, because the banking's very progressive through the turns and that gives you a lot of confidence to race side-by-side. We've worked really hard to improve our oval set-up this year, so I'm hoping we can bring everything together this weekend and move the Z-Line Designs car closer to the front."

Practice and qualifying take place on Friday August 28. Qualifying begins at 2.30 p.m. EDT and VERSUS has a one-hour qualifying show at 6 p.m. (EDT). Live coverage of Saturday night's event begins at 9 p.m. EDT in High Definition on VERSUS.
