Minnesota's Chris Miller enters home race sitting second in championship fight

MINNEAPOLIS, MN. (July 31, 2008) -- JDC MotorSports will travel to its 'home track' of Road America this coming weekend (August 2-3) focused on strengthening its position as title contender in the F2000 Championship Series Presented by Hoosier Racing Tire. Expanding to a three-car effort for the doubleheader at the renowned Wisconsin road course, series regulars Chris Miller and Juan Pfeiffer will be joined by Miller Milling's John Miller.

Despite being a series rookie with very limited experience behind the wheel of any race car prior to the start of the 2008 season, Chris Miller has quickly developed into a championship threat. Piloting the No. 85 Miller Milling/Redline Oil/JDC MotorSports entry, the Minnesota native has finished among the top-10 in every race thus far, the sole driver to do so, and is regularly among those challenging for the win, earning three podium finishes. Entering the Road America doubleheader, Chris Miller lies second in the championship standings, comfortably 40 points ahead of third place.

"Considering the experience that the team and I have at the track, I'm confident that we can achieve some good results," voiced Miller, ready to take on Road America. "To be sitting second in the championship and to have had the consistency and reliability that we have says a lot about the team and the hard work we have put in. We just need to keep moving in a positive direction and hopefully our first win will come soon."

For Miller's teammate Juan Pfeiffer, the upcoming doubleheader will mark the chance to put behind him his worst results to date in Rounds Seven and Eight, to focus on translating into race results the speed he has shown in testing, practice and qualifying. A native of Colombia, the series rookie has four top-10 finishes behind the wheel of his No. 86 Delavaco Energy/Omega Energy Columbia/Miller Milling/Redline Oil/JDC MotorSports car, having earned his best result to date at the high-speed Watkins Glen International circuit, which has similar characteristics to Road America.

A former competitor at the pro F2000 level in the 1990's, John Miller will make his F2000 Championship Series debut at his home track of Road America. Driving the No. 82 Miller Milling/Redline Oil/JDC MotorSports entry during the doubleheader, the father of Chris Miller will return to action having last competed several years ago at Sebring International Raceway.

The on-track action for the JDC MotorSports F2000 Championship Series drivers at Road America commences on Thursday (July 31st) with a dedicated four-hour test session. Day two of the event will feature a 25-minute morning practice session, followed by a 25-minute afternoon practice session. Both Saturday and Sunday (August 2-3) will have a 25-minute morning qualifying session, which will set the grid for the scheduled 12-lap races after the lunch break.
