Wilson to stay at Rusport

Justin Wilson will stay at the Rusport team in Champ Car this year and hopes to mount an even stronger challenge this year to Sebastien Bourdais and the Newman Haas Racing team. It will be the former F1 driver's third season with the team, although the ownership has changed over the winter and the team is now owned by former PKV Racing partner Dan Pettit. Wilson will again be sponsored by CDW. It is not yet clear who will be his team mate but the team needs a strong contender as Newman Haas is expected to confirm soon that Bourdais will be joined by rising US star Graham Rahal, son of former Jaguar Racing boss (and multiple CART champion, Indy 500 winner and IRL team owner) Bobby Rahal.
