June 11, 2009 - ATLANTA, GA - Coming off a win at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, Todd Lamb is looking to add to his success at New Jersey Motorsports Park this weekend in Rounds 3 & 4 of the Playboy Mazda MX-5 Cup series. Lamb's Atlanta Motorsports Group teammates, Brett Smrz and Bob Michaelian, will also compete in the doubleheader in NJ.

"I'm excited about heading to New Jersey. I know the track pretty well and have led a lot of laps there in Koni Challenge. It's a big opportunity to pick up a lot of points with the doubleheader, but it is still very early in the season so we have to focus on both the championship and individual wins," says Todd.

Lamb, from Atlanta, GA, missed Round 1 of the series at his home track of Road Atlanta due to other racing commitments, but still has the opportunity to win the championship thanks to a rule that allows racers to drop their lowest finish from the points total. Taking that into consideration, Lamb actually holds the points lead over Round 1 winner Marc Miller by virtue of qualifying 1st, leading the most laps, and winning Round 2 at Mazda Raceway.

Todd adds, "this ride came together the week before Round 2 so we didn't have the time to fine tune everything. The car was really good out of the box, but Jason Hoover and the rest of the AMG crew have been working on the Luna-C/Traqmate Mazda the last few weeks to get the most out of it for the rest of the season."

HDNet will air the two races live in high-def Saturday and Sunday from 1-4pm. Races are also available a few weeks after each event on YouTube.
