Justin looking forward to Japan

Justin and Dreyer & Reinbold Racing will be back on track this weekend for the penultimate race of the 2010 IZOD IndyCar Series, the Japan Indy 300 at Twin Ring Motegi. It will be Justin's second time at the unusual, egg-shaped 1.549 mile oval. In 2009, he started 9th and finished 12th for Dale Coyne Racing. This year the aim is to qualify and finish as far inside the top-10 as possible in the No. 22 Kona Deep car. Justin will once again partner with Paul Tracy who is standing in for Mike Conway in the team's No. 24 Motegi Racing Wheels entry.

"We're hoping for another strong result and to keep improving," said Justin. "The game plan is to qualify in the top-10 and I think that we can do it. Last year I qualified ninth. It's a tough track, but that's what I like about it. It's not all about being flat out. You really have to drive in Turns 2 and 4 and it puts a lot of emphasis on getting a good set up."

Practice and qualifying take place on Saturday, September 18th and the race starts at 1 p.m. local time on Sunday September 19th. With Japan being 13 hours ahead of US EDT, and 8 hours ahead of the UK, the weekend's schedule (which can be downloaded here) will mean some late nights/early mornings for those wishing to follow proceedings live.
