HISTORIC TROIS-RIVIERES STREET CIRCUIT LATEST CHALLENGE JDC MOTORSPORTS STAR MAZDA SQUAD
Minnesota-based team enters Round 10 with two wins and two drivers in the top-five of the championship fight

MINNEAPOLIS, MN. (August 12, 2009) -- JDC MotorSports commences its two-race Canadian road trip this weekend (August 15-16), with a visit to the historic Trois-Rivieres street circuit for Round 10 of the Star Mazda Championship powered by Mazda. In the Minnesota-based team's continued pursuit of a second series title, Adam Christodolou, Caio Lara, Alex Ardoin and Michael Guasch will once again get behind the wheels, having already scored two overall wins and five Masters Series wins in 2009.

While Round 10 will present Christodoulou with a new challenge, the first proper street circuit of the season, many expect the talented English rookie to quickly make his mark. The No. 11 Molecule/Red Line Oil/JDC MotorSports race pilot has been a front-runner since the season commenced in mid-March, earning two wins and six podium finishes en route to second in the current point standings.

Lara has proved to be a model of consistency in his second full season of Star Mazda competition and looks to continue to the trend in Quebec. Piloting the 19 MLD/ATW/Molecule/Red Line Oil/JDC MotorSports entry, the Brazilian has yet to finish outside the top-10, routinely challenging those battling for the win. As a result, Lara enters first of two races in Canada currently fifth in the championship fight.

Ardoin travels to the famed street circuit in Quebec confident he can challenge for top honors, given his previous success on the tight track. With a pole position and podium finish in Trois-Rivieres already on his racing resume, the No. 51 Oral & Facial Surgery Center/Red Line Oil/JDC MotorSports race pilot is poised to improve on his sixth place ranking in the current championship standings.

For Guasch, Round 10 is yet another opportunity to extend his advantage in the Masters Series title fight. The Californian will make his street circuit debut, having already steered the No. 91 Molecule/Red Line Oil/JDC MotorSports entry into victory lane five times this season.

JDC MotorSports drivers will get their first chance to sample the often treacherous Trois-Rivieres street circuit on Friday (August 14), with two 40-minute practice sessions. Day two will feature the lone qualifying sessions, setting the grid for Sunday's (August 16) Round 10 of the Star Mazda Championship presented by Goodyear.
