Justin aiming high in Edmonton 22-July-2010

Justin and Dreyer & Reinbold Racing have put the disappointment of Toronto behind them and can't wait to get the No. 22 Z-Line Designs car back on track as they prepare for Sunday's Honda Indy Edmonton in Alberta, Canada. The 1.973 mile circuit is a temporary airport track with some permanent corners and is a favourite of Justin's. He won here in the Champ Car World Series in 2006 and finished on the podium in 2007 and 2008. Last year he finished 8th after starting 15th on the grid for Dale Coyne Racing. After taking his first IZOD IndyCar Series Peak Performance Pole Award in Toronto last weekend, Justin's hoping to be fighting at the sharp end once again this weekend.

"I always enjoy the Edmonton race as it's a fun city with a fun track," said Justin. "It's a very challenging venue because of the high speeds and bumpy surface, but it's also very rewarding when things go your way. I'm glad that there's only a week between Toronto and Edmonton after the frustration I had in the race and I'm looking forward to getting back in the car and making things right. The team worked well at Toronto and if we do that kind of job again we can have another pole. I think that's an achievable goal as the team had strong cars in Edmonton last year. It goes with out saying that my goal is to win the race for Z-Line Designs and DRR."

Tomas Scheckter will be Justin's team-mate again this weekend, piloting the No. 24 MonaVie car while Mike Conway continues to recuperate from his Indianapolis 500 crash.
