READY FOR ROUND SIX
Courtney and Wittmer Return to World Challenge Sports Car Wars at Watkins Glen

Milwaukee, Wisconsin (July 2, 2010) - World Challenge drivers around the country are ready for Round Six of the 2010 World Challenge GT season at Watkins Glen International during this holiday weekend. Jeff Courtney, driver of the No. 99 Kenda Tires/Woodhouse/Dodge/Viper Competition Coupe is prepared to snatch a top-five finish to build on his consistent top-10 finishes in the first portion of the season. Teammate Kuno Wittmer, driver of the No. 13 Woodhouse Performance/Dodge/Viper Competition Coupe is also excited to build on his impressive start to the 2010 season where he currently holds the 2nd place position in the Championship Points' race.

"It has been a long break," said Courtney. "The beginning of the season is always a little hectic, and this mid-season gap has been good for the entire team, the opportunity to take a deep breath and focus on the rest of the season."

"In our last race in Mosport, we came out scoring some good points. We are very pleased with that," said Wittmer. "A podium effort is what we are looking for at Watkins Glen. The Porsche's will be fast on this course and so will the Volvos, but we have the best product in our hands with the Viper Comp Coupes. We should be able to run constant laps back to back all weekend and walk away with our plan achieved. "

The Woodhouse Performance team has really raised the bar this season; things have been working smoothly allowing Courtney and Wittmer to turn in some terrific times. "Rick and Matt have been really spectacular this season," said Courtney. "I know they have continued to work hard over this bit of a break, fine-tuning the cars and doing some testing so we have our game face on for the rest of the season."

"The race at Watkins Glen this weekend should be thrilling; when drivers return after a long break it tends to produce some surprises, both ways if you get my drift," said team owner Bob Woodhouse.
