West Allis, June 18, 2011: In this afternoon's single-car qualifying session at the Milwaukee Mile in Wisconsin, the Juncos Racing quartet stuck together to qualify in positions five through eight for tomorrow's 100-mile race. The four-pack will start side by side on rows three and four for the second oval race of the season tomorrow with Gustavo Menezes in fifth, J.V. Horto in sixth, Martin Scuncio in seventh and Tatiana Calderon in eighth.

Menezes, Horto, Scuncio and Calderon have shown consistency this weekend by also landing themselves in the top-eight positions in both official practice sessions.

The Star Mazda Championship presented by Goodyear had the chance to test at the one-mile oval at the end of May, gathering valuable information for the fourth race of the season this weekend. Though the series did not race at this track last year, the Juncos Racing team brought home a highest finishing position of fourth at the Milwaukee Mile in its 2009 debut season with current Firestone Indy Lights driver Peter Dempsey, showing high potential for the team's first victory of 2011 this weekend.
