Justin hoping for competitive run in Iowa

Justin and Dale Coyne Racing head to Iowa Speedway this weekend for the Iowa Corn Indy 250 presented by Pioneer. The grippy, 7/8th of a mile oval is one of the most physically demanding tracks on the schedule. In his debut a year ago Justin had a strong run to finish 12th and he's hopeful that he and the team will be competitive this weekend.

"I'm looking forward to getting back to Iowa," said Justin. "The track is so short that we're turning constantly all the way round, so it's hard work in the cockpit. Passing can be pretty difficult, so we need to find a decent set-up for qualifying. The last few oval events have been tough for us, but we've learned a lot and I'm confident that we're making progress. Hopefully we can bring home a strong result this weekend for the Z-Line Designs team."

The event gets underway with practice and qualifying on Saturday. Sunday's race starts at 1.30pm EDT (6.30pm BST) with live coverage on ABC from 1pm EDT. For UK viewers, live coverage starts at 6pm on Sky Sports Xtra. Fans can find a detailed event schedule for the weekend as well as live timing and scoring and radio coverage at www.indycar.com.
