Third time lucky at the Milwaukee Mile?

This weekend Justin heads to the Milwaukee Mile in Wisconsin, the only oval race on the 2006 Champ Car schedule. It will be Justin's third time at the Mile, a challenging track that's steeped in motorsport history.

After a tough induction to oval racing in 2004, last year Justin qualified third and narrowly missed out on a podium finish. This year the teams get a full test day at the track on Friday, which should help Justin and his engineers in their attempt to qualify well and find a good race set-up.

Looking ahead to the race, Justin said "Last year I finished fourth at Milwaukee. I hope to improve on that result this year, and I'm cautiously optimistic that I will. The CDW #9 car team and I will be working hard to qualify close to the front, therefore keeping me out of trouble and the wall! Milwaukee is a short lap and the car's set-up is critical.

It's especially difficult as there is only one oval per season. Finishing on the podium at Milwaukee will mean a lot to me, because it's such a unique challenge."
