Justin upbeat about Mid-Ohio chances

Justin is looking forward to getting back on track this weekend for the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio. The 2.258 mile Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course is a fast-flowing road circuit with some similarities to Watkins Glen, so it's no surprise it's one of Justin's favourites. In 2009 he narrowly missed out on pole for Dale Coyne Racing, took an early lead and was running a strong second before fuel problems forced him down the order. Justin had a productive test here last week with Dreyer & Reinbold Racing and JR Hildebrand, his team-mate for Mid-Ohio and Sonoma, so he's upbeat about his chances this weekend.

"Mid-Ohio is a great track," said Justin. "It's very technical, but it also takes a lot of commitment and I really enjoy it. We had a great test here and I think we learned some things, improved the car and did a lot of miles. I'm really looking forward to the race. Hopefully we can qualify near the front and have another strong weekend. The test definitely helped to kick start things and pointed us in the right direction. We tried a few things and we know what we're looking for, so fingers crossed."
