DAYTONA BEACH, FL,  January 31, 2010 - After months of preparation, the JLowe Racing team had a much shorter Rolex 24 than expected. Eric Lux started the #64 Siemens Gigaset JLowe Racing Porsche GT3 Cup from 17th on the grid in heavy rain and quickly moved up through the field. By the end of his second stint, he had brought the car up as high as second. After a driver change, Tim Sugden kept up the pace and also moved the car forward, running in the top six. Driver James Weaver took over for Sugden, but completed only three laps before the car slowed on the track as the engine lost power.

Jim Lowe stated,  "In terms of results, clearly this is not going to go down as one of our better days, but we move forward and focus on the fact that Eric Lux and Tim Sugden drove stellar stints bringing us up as high as P2 and James Weaver was keeping the pace. Plus, with the help of our sponsors, Siemens Gigaset and Enviro Packaging Solutions, and our loyal fans, we've had great success with our fundraising efforts for ThinkFirst.  I look forward to continuing our work together and can't wait to get back on the track."

Eric Lux, said, "We had a top-five car today. Thanks to a great effort by the whole team. The hard part is waiting 365 days to come back and do it again.  I'm already looking forward to that."
