JDC MOTORSPORTS CONTINUES PURSUIT OF F2000 CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES TITLE IN WEST VIRGINIA

Chris Miller travels to Summit Point Motorsports Park as the points leader and a three-time race winner in 2009

MINNEAPOLIS, MN. (July 16, 2009) -- JDC MotorSports travels to Summit Point Motorsports Park in West Virginia this weekend (July 18-19) as the team everyone is chasing in the F2000 Championship Series title fight. American Chris Miller stands at the top of the points charts entering the Rounds Nine and Ten doubleheader, having won a series-high three races thus far in 2009. Mexican Alejandro Munoz meanwhile continues to show continued progress every time he takes to the track.

For Miller, the F2000 Championship Series visit to the Summit Point facility is yet another opportunity to showcase his talents behind the wheel of a JDC MotorSports F2000 entry, as well as continue his pursuit of an inaugural open-wheel championship title. While the 2.0-mile road course will be new to both the young driver and his experienced race squad, many believe Minnesota-based driver will quickly get up to speed and be challenging for the race wins. With only two rounds remaining after the West Virginia doubleheader, the goal for Miller is to build on his championship, which expands from one point to 26 points when the mandatory two drops are factored in. Given the No. 85 Miller Milling/Red Line Oil/JDC MotorSports Van Diemen RF06/Zetec driver has finished among the top-10 in 19 of his 22 career series starts, and stood on the podium in six of the past seven races, winning three times, accomplishing this goal is not that unlikely.

Piloting the No. 96 Black Lion Racing/Redline Oil/JDC MotorSports Van Diemen RF01/Zetec entry, Munoz continues his inaugural season of F2000 Championship Series competition in West Virginia seeking to continue his progress as a driver. The Mexican rookie has steadily improved both his speed on-course and feedback to the crew with each passing event, with top-10 finishes the goal entering the final races of 2009.

"The team is anxious to get back on track," stated team owner John Church. "Chris has been doing a great job of learning new tracks and getting up to speed all year, and Alejandro is coming off a great weekend at Watkins Glen where he had his best finish to date."

The JDC MotorSports F2000 Championship Series drivers will get their first chance to sample the Summit Point Motorsports Park road course on Thursday (July 16) via an early evening test session. A pair 30-minute practice sessions will be held one day later, followed by a morning qualifying session and afternoon race on both Saturday (July 18) and Sunday (July 19).
