Conquest Racing has announced that it will return to the Cooper Tires Presents the Atlantic Championship powered by Mazda for the latest round of the season at Lime Rock Park.

The team, which took Harald Schlegelmilch to fourth and James Winslow to eighth in the event at Sebring earlier this season, will run a single car at Lime Rock for former driver Matt Lee, with backing for the entry coming from JOJO Energy Drink.

"It will be nice to return to Atlantic racing for a second time this year," Conquest team owner Eric Bachelart said. "We've worked with Matt in the past and we're happy to be working with him again for this race."

Lee previously drove for the Conquest Racing Atlantic team in 2007 alongside Giacomo Ricci and competed at the 2009 Atlantic Championship season-opener in Sebring with Jensen Motorsports.

"I'm really excited to be back with Conquest Racing this weekend," the 19-year-old said. "I enjoyed driving for them in 2007 and we had a good test together yesterday at New Jersey Motorsports Park. Things are very encouraging heading into the weekend. It feels good to be back in the car in the Atlantic Series and to be racing at Lime Rock Park. It's like my home race because it's so close to where I live. I'm also happy to be partnered with JOJO Energy Drinks and to be part of their motor sports programme. They're a great company to be associated with."
