FEINBERG AND WEISBERG ARE VICTORIOUS AT FORMULA X IN NEW JERSEY

MILLVILLE, N.J. June 14 -- Joel Feinberg took advantage of a mid-race restart to take the lead in round six of the IMSA Lites presented by Frisby Performance Tire series and never looked back, leading the remainder of the 45-minute race.

"I was able to get through the gears better than he did," Feinberg said. "I had enough momentum to stick it out and go deep and then checked out from him."

The lap following Feinberg's pass on Drewer Kyle Marcelli also passed him, moving into second place. Marcelli wasn't able to catch Feinberg, but set a new race lap record trying. Lucas Downs rounded out the top three in Lites One.

The Lites Two outcome was in question until the last lap when John Weisberg was able to hold off Garrett Kletjian to take his third win of the 2009 season.

"He made me work for it. About five laps to go I was praying it would end really soon," Weisberg said. "I was able to keep him behind me, but it was a lot of work. The Redcom Laboratories West came through for me."

The next stop on the IMSA Lites presented by Frisby Performance Tire schedule is the American LeMans Northeast Grand Prix July 17-18.

The IMSA Lites presented by Frisby Performance Tire is a championship comprised of 14 rounds at seven famous tracks in North America including Road America, Elkhart Lake, Wis. And Road Atlanta, Braselton, Ga.
