Justin makes early exit from Iowa Corn Indy 250 20-June-2010

Justin suffered an early exit from 2010's Iowa Corn Indy 250 after the No. 22 Charter car got loose through Turn 3 on the opening lap and spun into the wall, collecting KV Racing's Mario Moraes on the way.

"It's very disappointing," said Justin. "Going into Turn 3, everything felt great, but I kind of got loaded up and felt the back start to move. I got off the throttle, but it was too late. It's obviously not how I wanted today to be and I feel sorry for everyone on the Charter car and Dreyer & Reinbold Racing and also for Mario and his guys. He was an unfortunate bystander."

Tony Kanaan took a popular victory for Andretti Autosport, chased home by runner-up Helio Castroneves (Team Penske) with EJ Viso (KV Racing) rounding out the podium. After some initial radio problems Graham Rahal had a strong run to 9th in Dreyer & Reinbold Racing's second entry, the No. 24 Dad's Root Beer custom designed HOT WHEELS® car.

After nearly two months turning left, the next five races on the 2010 IZOD IndyCar Series schedule are road or street course events starting with Watkins Glen on July 4th, scene of Justin's victory in 2009.
