Justin joins Dreyer and Reinbold Racing for 2010 IZOD IndyCar

Justin and Dreyer and Reinbold Racing have announced that they will join forces for the 2010 IZOD IndyCar Series season. Justin will drive in familiar colours as Z-Line Designs also joins the team as primary sponsor of Justin's No. 22 car. 2010 will be Justin's third season of IndyCar Series racing and he's looking forward to a successful year.

"I'm very excited to join Dreyer and Reinbold Racing," said Justin. "I think that they are a great team and I really like the direction that DRR is headed in. They have put a lot of work in over the winter and that is very encouraging. I believe that we will be very competitive and my aim is to win the championship. I know it may seem steep, but I feel that we have a very good chance and I'm ready to win some races. I also think that it's great that Z-Line Designs has chosen Dreyer and Reinbold Racing and I really look forward to working with them for a second year. It's going to be a good season."

Justin's team-mate for 2010 will be fellow Briton Mike Conway who returns to DRR for a second season. Conway will pilot the No. 24 Dad's Root Beer/ Roll Coater entry.

"We are excited to be able to put a deal together for both Mike and Justin," commented Dennis Reinbold, Dreyer and Reinbold Racing co-owner. "They are both really talented drivers and we believe that they will be great teammates. We made a number of productive changes over the off-season and as we continue to build our team we feel that we are making Dreyer and Reinbold Racing more and more competitive."

"I'm as excited as I've ever been," added Dreyer and Reinbold Racing co-owner Robbie Buhl. "I think this is the best focus we've had in years. It's been a long time since we've been in a position to have two very competitive entries and we couldn't be happier. We are ready to win some races and really feel that we can do it with Justin and Mike. They are exceptional drivers and we are thrilled to have them on board with us. It's also great to have Z-Line join us and to have all of our valued and loyal sponsor partners back with us this season."

Like Justin, Jim Sexton, CEO and founder of Z-Line Designs is also looking forward to his company's new partnership with Dreyer and Reinbold. "I can't thank Justin enough for continuing to represent Z-Line Designs," he said. "With Justin driving the Z-Line Designs/Dreyer and Reinbold Racing IndyCar this year the competitive promise is very high. Dreyer and Reinbold Racing is also well positioned to help us drive value for our retail partners and the Z-Line brand. The IZOD IndyCar Series is gaining steam and we are very pleased to mix it up with such fast company."

Justin will get behind the wheel of the No. 22 Z-Line Designs car for the first time on February 24th and 25th at the IZOD IndyCar Series open test at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama.
