Hoping to Build Upon St. Pete’s Top 10 Finishes.
MILWAUKEE, WI (April 11, 2012) —Jeff Courtney is ready for the drivers seat of the #99 Kenda Tires/RecStuff.com Porsche, in round #2 of the 2012 World-Challenge Series taking place this weekend in the Grand Prix of Long Beach.
“This 11-turn street course is sure to be another competitive street fight for position and points,” says Courtney of the historic, 1.968 mile course.
Courtney is coming off a pair of 7th place finishes at the Streets of St. Pete race where “teammate” Lawson Aschenbach of the TruSpeed team took the checkered flag
Courtney’s JCR Motorsports Porsche will again be under TruSpeed tent as the teams work together on the car setup and data, as they they continue to develop the car to be competitive.
“It is always a great venue and one of my favorite street circuits,” says Courtney, “I will have a lot of family and friends at the race and I am really looking forward to it.”
Many drivers at the event will have “hero” cards for autographs and, at this race, Courtney will be rolling out the new Peel Out hero cards from TrunkSlammerSports.com for fans to get an autograph and then peel the car and autograph off for display on nearly any flat surface.
