Justin, RuSPORT and CDW renew their relationship

Justin, RuSPORT and title sponsor CDW announced today that they would continue their successful partnership in the Champ Car World Series. With the introduction of the new Panoz DP01 chassis and new team owner, Dan Pettit, Justin is hoping that all the ingredients are in place for a successful 2007 championship campaign.

"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. "He is a valuable asset and as a team, we look forward to taking him to the top of the podium. Justin is a unifying presence here at RuSPORT and his dedication and work ethic make him a true champion."

"The CDW family is excited that Justin will remain behind the wheel of the No. 9 CDW/RuSPORT car for the 2007 Champ Car World Series," said Mark J. Gambill, Vice President, Marketing, CDW. "Justin has shown himself to be a fierce competitor and true gentleman both on and off the track. Together RuSPORT and CDW make a winning team of racing and technology."

Justin will have his first opportunity to sample the new Panoz DP01-Cosworth at Sebring International Raceway in Florida during a three day open Champ Car test starting tomorrow, Tuesday 23rd January. Further tests are scheduled for Houston in February and Laguna Seca in March.
