WOODHOUSE PERFORMANCE TEAM IS HUNGRY
Courtney and Wittmer Prepare to Take Charge at Mid-Ohio

Milwaukee, Wisconsin (August 5, 2010) - Jeff Courtney , driver of the No. 99 Kenda Tires/Woodhouse/Dodge/Viper Competition Coupe is gearing up for rounds 8 and 9 in the exciting Sports Car Wars of the World Challenge 2010 season. The entire Woodhouse Performance Team, including teammate Kuno Wittmer, driver for the No. 13 Woodhouse Performance/Dodge Viper Competition Coupe has spent the last couple of weeks preparing the Vipers for a double-header race weekend in the World Challenge Championships at the famed Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course and they are looking to produce some strong finishes.

"I'm really looking forward to this double race weekend," said Courtney. "We've had some past successes at this track and we are looking to be more competitive here this weekend. I'm particularly excited to be right in KENDA's backyard." KENDA Tires, a long-time sponsor of Courtney, is located in Columbus, Ohio. "It is going to be great to have the KENDA people out and I'm looking forward to putting on a good show."

Wittmer is also excited for the upcoming races, "I'm looking forward to the Mid-Ohio road course; this type of track should be good for our Dodge Vipers. This competition will be harder than ever, but I have been training hard for this championship. It will pay off!"

When asked about the team's readiness for the Mid-Ohio races, Team Owner Bob Woodhouse responded with typical gusto, "Mid-Ohio, a double race weekend in front of 125,000 people. Are we ready? Dang right we are! This Volvo dominance is getting really old and we need people to see a couple of well cared for Dodge Viper Competition Coupes driven by a couple of the best drivers just standing on the gas and out in front. Ron Fellows has been doing an incredible job as well with that Corvette he's driving, I need to walk over there and look for the "press to pass" button."

"We are not far off the top spot in the points race," said Wittmer. "As a team, we are tight-tighter than ever and we really want this. It's time to turn up the wick on this competition and fight them hard."
