JDC MOTORSPORTS SET FOR F2000 RETURN AT VIR
Miller and Pfeiffer to drive for the team in the F2000 Championship Series opener
MINNEAPOLIS, MIN. (April 17, 2008) - JDC MotorSports commences its inaugural F2000 Championship Series campaign this coming weekend (April 18-20) with Rounds One and Two taking place at the Virginia International Raceway. A former pro FF2000 race winner, JDC MotorSports will make its return to the class in 2008, after a brief hiatus, with a full-time effort in the F2000 Championship Series. Chris Miller, a former karting standout, will lead the JDC charge at the VIR doubleheader, taking part in his first-ever pro race in the No. 85 Miller Milling/JDC MotorSports Van Diemen. Running two cars in the season-opener, Juan Pfeiffer will pilot the No. 86 JDC MotorSports car, having previously raced assorted formula cars in the past.
After a successful off-season testing program, the JDC drivers and crew enter the weekend at the picturesque road course confident of starting the season on a positive note.
"After a few years away, it will be nice to once again be racing in the pro F2000 ranks," commented team owner John Church. "The F2000 Championship Series has really grown over the past few years and this year will feature a large and talented field. It will be interesting to see how we stack up, but I think we have the crew and drivers to challenge right from the get-go."
Based in Minnesota, JDC MotorSports is widely regarded as one of the top junior open-wheel teams in North America. Having helped propel several drivers up the motorsports ladder, JDC Motorsports will contest multiple championships in 2008. In addition to returning the Formula Ford 2000 class via the F2000 Championship Series, the team will once again take part in the highly competitive Star Mazda Championship with a multi-car effort. Last season, the team proved to be a dominant force, winning both the driver and team championship via a series-high three wins.
The on-track action at Virginia International Raceway commences on Thursday, April 17 with official pre-event testing. Miller and Pfeiffer will get their first chance to post an official F2000 Championship Series time on Friday, taking part in two 30-minute practice sessions. Saturday and Sunday will each feature a morning qualifying session followed by Rounds One and Two in the afternoon.
