Loveland, CO, Jan. 22nd, 2007 -- RuSPORT is delighted to welcome back Justin Wilson and title sponsor, CDW, as they look to take the No. 9 car to a championship finish in 2007. RuSPORT has signed Wilson to a multi year contract and is looking forward to a very competitive future with CDW and other team sponsors. With the introduction of the new Panoz DP01 chassis and new team owner, Dan Pettit, Wilson is excited about his opportunity to compete for the Champ Car World Series Championship.
"I'm delighted to continue my relationship with RuSPORT and CDW," said Justin. "CDW and their partners are fantastic sponsors and the RuSPORT team is hugely talented. It's been a great combination and we have big ambitions for the future. Continuity counts for a lot in motorsport and this extension will allow me to focus 100 percent on getting the most out of the new DP01 and come out fighting for the 2007 championship."
"We are absolutely delighted to have Justin driving the No. 9 CDW/RuSPORT car for us this year," said Dan Pettit, RuSPORT team owner.

In 2006, Wilson placed second in the Vanderbilt Cup standings and is aiming to capture the coveted trophy in 2007. He completed the season with eleven top-ten finishes, seven podium finishes, two pole awards, a win in Edmonton and was awarded the Greg Moore Legacy award that honors a driver's success and sportsmanship both on and off the track.
