Justin hopeful of strong run in Iowa 17-June-2010

The IZOD IndyCar Series heads to Iowa Speedway this weekend for Sunday's Iowa Corn Indy 250. A year ago Dreyer & Reinbold Racing's entries finished 6th and 8th on the steeply banked 0.875 mile short oval, so Justin's hopeful that the No. 22 Charter team will be quick straight out of the box this weekend.

"I'm looking forward to Iowa," said Justin. "Hopefully we'll have a strong weekend. The team is confident that our cars will be good and I can't wait to get out there. It's a tight track and high banked. It's a lot of fun to drive on if your car is working well, but if it's not it's a long day and I've had both there! It really is car-dependent and hopefully we can tune it in and get it close enough to race hard and have a good day."

Justin will be reunited with a former team-mate this weekend as Graham Rahal joins the team to drive the No. 24 Dad's Root Beer custom designed HOT WHEELS® car in Iowa. The two last worked together in 2008 at Newman/Haas/Lanigan Racing.

"It's great to be working with Graham again," Justin added. "It will be fun to reunite. He's a good guy and now he has some experience. Obviously I'm still thinking about Mike and hopefully he will make a quick recovery and get back in the car soon."

For Sky Sports viewers in the UK there will be live coverage from 7pm BST on Sunday evening on Sky Sports 3.
