* The RuSPORT team comes into Surfer's Paradise with Justin only two championship points out of third place, 214 points to Paul Tracy's 216 points and AJ in seventh place with 172 points but only 14 points out of fifth place.

* Australia has been a good track for the RuSPORT duo with both drivers finishing in the top-eight in 2004 in their first outing on the 2.795-mile street course. AJ started fourth in 2004 and finished sixth, while Justin started seventh and finished eighth.

* The RuSPORT drivers and team are only in their second season of Champ Car competition. Wilson and Allmendinger have each captured their first career pole positions this season along with two all-RuSPORT front rows. Justin also earned his first Champ Car victory in Toronto and AJ was on his way to his first win in Edmonton, leading a dominating 40 laps, when contact ended his day with only eight laps to go.
