Justin looks forward to Chicagoland

26-August-2010 - Justin and the No. 22 Z-Line Designs team are back in oval mode now for the final four races of the 2010 IZOD IndyCar Series, starting with Saturday night's Peak Indy 300 at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Illinois. Filling in for injured Mike Conway in the No. 24 Dad's Root Beer car this weekend is Ana Beatriz, whose last outing for Dreyer & Reinbold Racing was at the Indy 500.

Chicagoland is well known for its exciting, three-wide racing and Justin has enjoyed strong runs there on his two previous visits. In 2008 he qualified 21st and finished 11th and last year he moved up from 15th at the start to finish 10th in the Z-Line Designs car. With back-to-back weekends in Chicagoland and Kentucky, the next fortnight will be intense and Justin's hoping that a well-focused effort will pay dividends.

"I'm looking forward to getting back on an oval," said Justin. "Out of the mile and half tracks that we run on, Chicagoland is the one that I like the most. The goal starting this weekend is to just keep progressing and get stronger and my aim is to get into the top-10. I think that we are more than capable. We just need to get everything right and I think that we can."
