Justin upbeat about Long Beach chances

Justin returns to the track this weekend with Dale Coyne Racing for the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. Although it is the IndyCar Series' first event on the famous California street circuit, it will be Justin's sixth race around the 1.968 mile track.

A year ago Justin dominated qualifying and took pole position for what was the final race of the former Champ Car World Series, but he was forced to retire early from the race with an engine failure.

After their strong performance two weeks ago in the 2009 season-opener at St. Petersburg, Justin and the team are hoping that their collective experience will see them fighting for a podium finish with the #18 Z-Lines Design entry.

"I'm really looking forward to this weekend," said Justin. "I love the Long Beach circuit and the whole event has a great atmosphere. I think the entire Dale Coyne Racing team will build on our strong finish in St Petersburg and hopefully we can run at the top of the field. As last year's pole sitter, I'll be doing my best to start there again this year."
