Summerton back with NWR
Newman Wachs Racing announces today the return of Jonathan Summerton to their Atlantic Championship operation for the remainder of the 2009 season.   

Summerton, who drove for NWR in 2008, finished 3rd in the Championship after claiming two wins for the team (Edmonton and Road America) in addition to a pole position at the season finale at Road Atlanta. He has spent the first part of 2009 competing in the Firestone Indy Lights (FIL) series as well as the Atlantic Championship on a race by race basis.

With the success that Summerton and NWR shared in last season’s Championship, team owner Eddie Wachs decided to reunite with the young American. “I am glad to have Jonathan back with us. I think that he and John (Edwards) will both push one another and in turn, make each a better driver,” states team owner Eddie Wachs. Summerton currently sits 2nd in points, just ahead of his new teammate John Edwards. The talented driver has been touted  as one of the most promising young American drivers competing in the United States. He has been publicized as being a serious consideration for the U.S. team that plans on entering Formula One in 2010.

“I am very excited to re-join the team and get back to our winning ways of last year. I appreciate the opportunity Eddie has given me and I am looking forward to winning the championship that the team deserves.”
