DETROIT — Johnson Controls is continuing its sponsorship of Lansing, Mich.-based Rocketsports Racing in the 2004 Champ Car World Series. Brian Kesseler, group vice president and general manager of customer business units for the automotive group of Johnson Controls, and Rocketsports team owner, Paul Gentilozzi announced their return to the premier open-wheel racing series with plans for the upcoming season.

The company entered the Champ Car competition in 2003 with the No. 33 Johnson Controls Lola driven by Alex Tagliani. Tagliani took the young team to the podium three times, secured two pole positions and finished tenth place in the championship standings.
