Justin ready for Richmond challenge

Justin and Dale Coyne Racing have put the disappointment of Iowa behind them as they prepare for Saturday night’s SunTrust Indy Challenge at Richmond International Raceway. A year ago Justin emerged unscathed from a chaotic race to finish 7th at the ¾ mile oval, the shortest on the IndyCar Series schedule.

"Richmond is one of the most challenging ovals we race on," said Justin. "It's hot and physical and last year it was a real war of attrition. Just making it to the finish felt like a major achievement! I know what to expect this year and the extra experience should come in useful. We've had some bad luck with reliability in the last couple of races, so I'm hoping that the Z-Line Designs team can have a trouble-free run this weekend."

Practice and qualifying take place on Friday. Versus has a live qualifying show at 6pm EDT Friday as well as live coverage of the race from 8pm EDT Saturday (1am BST Sunday). Fans in the UK will find live coverage on Sky Sports 1 at 1.30am BST Sunday as well as a full repeat later the same day at 12 noon on Sky Sports Xtra. FIVE is showing the race highlights at 1am BST on Wednesday 1st July.
