AFTER A "BACK TO FRONT" RUN AT UTAH, COURTNEY CLAIMS HE WILL RAISE THE BAR AT WATKINS GLEN, NEW YORK
Slinger, Wisc. (June 2, 2008) -- Jeff Courtney is revved up for his next race at Watkins Glen in up-state New York coming up this June 6-8. Courtney is hot off his last race at Miller Motorsports Park in Utah where he posted the fastest lap as well as earning the Sunoco Hard Charger Award and earned himself another top ten finish. Woodhouse Performance had a particularly strong showing at Miller, with teammate Tommy Archer in the No. 13 Foametix/Woodhouse Performance Dodge Viper taking the checkered flag. The No. 13 car is shared by both Archer and teammate Claudio Burtin. The Woodhouse Performance Team is still flying high, "After a good race, you just can't wait to get back on the track," said Courtney.
Courtney is primed to get back behind the wheel with his No. 99 Kenda/TJM IWM/MPI Coin Dodge Viper which has benefited from addition of new team members Claudio Burtin, John Mills and Tommy Archer. "I think Claudio, John and Tommy have become key components to our team; these additions have strengthened our team as a whole."
"After starting the season with three consecutive top ten finishes, our goals remain the same, we are chasing the checkered flag and no DNFs," said Courtney.
The track at Watkins Glen is not particularly Viper friendly. "The elevation changes are harder on the Viper, but I guarantee there is no quit in this Woodhouse Team. We will find a set-up that works," said Courtney.
For those who watched last week's race and caught Courtney's amazing 6th place finish after a distant 19th place start, Sunday's race won't come soon enough.
