Justine's Update





September 19, 2010

From VIRginia International Raceway to New Jersey Motorsports Park, Miller Motorsports Park, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Autobahn Country Club and most recently Road America, the Volkswagen Jetta TDI Cup Series has been all over the United States, racing on some of the most historic tracks. On September 24, they will go one step further. For the first time in its three year history the final two races will take place in Mexico!

Justine Jackson, driver of the # 40 Project Podium, Jetcon Corporation and Helle Nice Foundation sponsored Volkswagen Jetta TDI Cup car will be racing at the Autodromo Miguel E. Abed race track, a two mile “roval” or part oval, part road course in front of thousands of Mexican race fans. This will signify Justine’s completion of her first season in cars as well her first season competing outside of her home, Jamaica and her first season racing at the national level in the United States.

Justine had this to say:

“I can’t believe the season is almost over, but I can’t wait to get back in my TDI Cup car and of all places Mexico! It’s so great that Volkswagen has given us the opportunity to race outside of the US which will enable us to meet more persons within the Motorsports Industry and to experience a different culture of racing. I’m really looking forward to racing in Mexico and it should be interesting to see how everything pans out as this is a new track to everyone and a much different track than the ones we have raced on this season. I’ve been working really hard to prepare for these final two races and my goals are to continue to learn, because you never stop learning and to have a solid weekend and finish the year on a high note. A huge thank you to my sponsorsProject Podium, Jetcon Corporation and the awesome support of the Helle Nice Foundation. I also would not be racing if it wasn’t for my Personal Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ who has been with me always, and especially through all the ups and downs this season.”
