Justin looking forward to getting back on track at Mid-Ohio

Justin is looking forward to a strong run at the Honda Indy 200 presented by Westfield Insurance this weekend. In 2008 Justin qualified on the second row, led eleven laps, and eventually finished 11th. This year he has higher ambitions for the #18 Z-Line Designs car and Dale Coyne Racing.

The 2.258 mile Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course is a fast-flowing road circuit with some similarities to Watkins Glen, where Justin recorded his first victory of 2009. "I am looking forward to getting back on track at Mid-Ohio", said Justin. "It has a fun, challenging, layout and it is very demanding on the car set up. It feels slightly narrower than Watkins Glen, and you have to be in the right groove, but if you get that right, you can carry a lot of speed. If we can find a balance early enough, I think we will have a shot at the Pole. Ultimately we are looking to get everything right on Sunday as I really want to back up my Watkins Glen win."

The Honda Indy 200 event at Lexington, Mid-Ohio gets underway with practice on Friday. Qualifying is on Saturday, and starts at 12:30pm EDT with delayed coverage on Versus at 6pm EDT. Sunday's race starts at 1:45pm EDT, with live coverage in the US on Versus from 1pm EDT. Viewers in the UK can follow the race on Sky Sports Xtra from 10:30pm BST on Sunday. A detailed event schedule and live timing and scoring, radio and video streaming are available through www.indycar.com.
