Woodhouse Performance Returns to SPEED GT with Courtney and Dodge Viper
BLAIR, Neb. (Feb. 26, 2008) -- Woodhouse Performance is happy to announce its return to the SCCA Pro Racing SPEED World Challenge GT Championship with driver Jeff Courtney. Following a strong seventh-place finish in the 2007 points, Courtney is back to pilot the No. 99 Dodge Viper.
"We will again have Kenda Tires, MPI Coin, TJM Integrated Wealth Management and Badger Components as our primary sponsors for the No. 99 car," team owner Bob Woodhouse said. "It's great to have them back, as well as JG Wheels, Foerster Signs, Karavan Trailers, Eibach Springs and Kicker all supporting the team from last year."
"2007 was a great year for Woodhouse Performance and it is exciting to be back in 2008," Courtney said. "We have created some dynamic team synergy that I look forward to refining this year. We intend to prove the viability of the Dodge Viper in this series, while several other teams from last year have now opted for other cars."
"We are looking to announce Jeff's teammate in the No. 13 Viper very soon," added Woodhouse, who has been a steady fixture and a paddock favorite with his flashy cars, love for the sport and sense of humor. "Jeff was a great addition to the team last year with his patient driving style and strong pushes in the fourth quarter of every race. He keeps us in contention and we are convinced the best is yet to come with Jeff."
Although Courtney was new to SPEED GT in 2007, his seventh place points finish came on the heels of his 2006 SPEED Touring Car Rookie of the Year title. In the off-season his tires have been anything but cool, as he has been busy with performance testing and recently placed second in the Koni Challenge race at Daytona, Fla., Jan. 24-25.
SPEED GT is revving up for its first standing start March 14-16 at Sebring International Raceway, with Round Two scheduled for the Grand Prix of Long Beach, April 18-20.
