Justin Lofton will join CJM Racing's Driver Line-up in 2009

Mooresville, NC (July 7, 2009) -- ARCA RE/MAX regular Justin Lofton will join the CJM Racing family as the team will field a second car for four races later this season. Lofton is slated to run NASCAR Nationwide Series races at Michigan, Lowe's, Texas and Homestead.

A California native, Lofton got his start at age 11 racing downhill mountain bikes. His need for speed progressed over the years as he made his way to four-wheels in 2003. His young career has taken him to off-road desert racing, Late Models, the NASCAR Camping World West Series and most recently the ARCA RE/MAX Series.

For the past two seasons, Lofton has raced in the ARCA RE/MAX Series with Eddie Sharp Racing. In his debut season with the series, he garnered one win, three top-five and five top-10 finishes in 20 starts. This season the momentum has continued as this up-and-coming driver has already posted one win, seven top-five, seven top-10 finishes and five poles in just nine starts.

"Justin's natural ability behind the wheel of a race car has been impressive and we're looking forward to taking it to the next level with him," stated CJM Racing co-owner, Tony Mullet. "We're starting out with a smaller program with hopes of securing something long-term down the road. This is an exciting time for the CJM Racing organization."
