SEASON NARROWS TOWARDS END
Courtney Looking Forward to Petit Le Mans
Milwaukee, Wisconsin (September 21, 2009) - Jeff Courtney, driver of the No. 99 Kenda Tires/Woodhouse Performance Dodge Viper Competition Coupe is preparing for the 9th round of the SCCA Pro Racing SPEED World Challenge Championships at Road Atlanta. Courtney welcomes back friend and fellow racer Charlie Putman in the No. 13 car for the final two events of the season.
"I'm really looking forward to Road Atlanta," said Courtney. "The Petit Le Mans event is an all-around great event and I love being a part of it." The Road Atlanta track is a favorite for many drivers as they race down hills at high-speed into exhilarating turns.
"It is really a spectacular event," said Bob Woodhouse, Woodhouse Performance Team owner. "We've had a really good year, not only as a team, but as a series." Even in these tough economic times, the SCCA series has reported an increase in attendance at events. Families and fans are getting back to basics and enjoying the live-action racing at venues all around the nation.
Returning to the team for the last two events of the SCCA SPEED GT events is Charlie Putman. "These two drivers are a great asset to the team, they both push each other to be the best they can be," said Woodhouse.
Last year at this event, Courtney earned the Racing Electronics Holeshot Award after advancing three positions in the first lap. Unfortunately, the race was cut short for Courtney who was hit by another competitor which dropped him out of the race. "Last year we had some great expectations, and this year is no different," said Courtney. "Except this time, we're planning to bring it all the way to the finish."
