Justin aiming high at Portland

Justin and the RuSPORT team are aiming high as they head into this weekend's Champ Car Grand Prix of Portland. A fortnight ago in Milwaukee Justin put in another strong drive to 4th place. A string of consistent 4th place finishes has moved Justin up to 2nd in the Drivers Championship, but he'd much rather be winning races.

Justin and A.J. enjoy the Portland International Raceway. Last year, the pair gave the crowd some of the best on-track action of the season as they fought a race-long battle, including a breathtaking side-by-side exit from the pits. Justin won the Portland fight last year, finishing 5th and one place ahead of A.J.. Now as teammates, the duo expect to push each other higher still.

A.J. and Justin posted the top two times in testing at the Oregon circuit after the opening Long Beach race, and Justin is eager to get on track this weekend. "I'm really looking forward to Portland. Everything points to a great result for us; we were the two quickest cars at the open test after Long Beach and we've been improving each race. Milwaukee was such a great run for both RuSPORT cars and we've definitely picked up even more momentum. I'm also very keen on breaking my streak of 4th place finishes and actually getting onto the podium this weekend."
