Jim Lowe-The World's Fastest Neurosurgeon Comes Home to NJMP

MILLVILLE, NJ, July 15, 2010 - Dr. Jim Lowe spends most mornings in the operating room, conducting a team of nurses and doctors. As one of the Northeast's top Neurosurgeons, Dr. Lowe is used to pressure and excels in it. Most doctors look to their time off to relax and unwind, away from the stresses of the job, and Jim is no different.

But Jim is not your average Harvard cum laude Neurosurgeon. On weekends, instead of playing a relaxing round of golf, Jim trades the scrubs for a Nomex racing suit. And instead of leading a team of medical professionals, Jim is surrounded by a race team dedicated to getting him on the podium.

This year, Dr. Jim Lowe's racing season started with high hopes as he headed into January's GRAND-AM Rolex 24 at Daytona. He had assembled a stout driver line-up and impressive crew. The car was meticulously prepared and new sponsors came onboard to support the effort. All was going to plan with the #64 Porsche GT3 Cup running in the top five when, without warning, the car suffered sudden engine failure in the fifth hour. The race was over without even a scratch on the car's gleaming red paint.

Fast forward to July. The New Jersey round of the GRAND-AM Roles Series has been penciled in on Jim's calendar since last year. As his home track, this race carries considerable significance for Jim, regardless of Daytona's outcome. "I run at NJMP as often as possible. The track is only an hour from my house so I can drive all day and then sleep in my own bed at night. The course at Thunderbolt is challenging and fast, putting a real premium on chassis set-up. We're very excited to get the team back together after such a long lay-off. With family, friends and sponsors on hand for the race, we expect to give them all something to cheer about." To say that Jim's focus remains laser sharp is an understatement.

For this weekend's race, Jim has reassembled his team led by Roger Reis and brought in his good friend, and veteran racer, Johannes van Overbeek as co-driver. The JLowe Racing #64 Porsche GT3 Cup carries sponsorship of SIEMENS GIGASET, Enviro Packaging Solutions, Porsche of the Main Line and ThinkFirst, National Injury Prevention Foundation.
