2000 Chicago Thoughts

RACE: A great replay of last week's duel spoiled by electronics.

TRACK: Sure, it wasn't Michigan, but there were a fair number of position changes for what most feared would be a no passing parade.

DA MATTA: Many have said that Cristiano is the most talented Brazilian in CART. Now that he has his breakthrough win, it's time to prove it.

WELLS: Perseverance does pay off.

ANDRETTI: This was the type of drive, as well as three weeks, that wins championships.

DE FERRAN: Yet another quiet podium finish.

MONTOYA: If only laps led meant anything in the championship...

KANAAN: His best drive for Mo Nunn until the gearbox let him down.

JOURDAIN: One of his best drives in his career.

MORENO: Winning Cleveland appears to have been bad luck.

TOYOTA: Okay, now can they win on a road course?

PAPIS: You know the old saying, if it wasn't for bad luck...

CASTRONEVES: Talk about a flamethrower!

TEAM GREEN: Not again! Except this time Dario has to take most of the blame.

TRACY: Paul sure loves Chicago. Not!

ENGINES: When was the last time you saw so many engines of different makes go up in smoke? Especially when it's not the first race of the season.

ABC: Does ABC doing the once unthinkable -- allowing a race running over to intrude on the news time slot -- mean that they are serious about trying to keep the CART TV contract?

WIERD STAT OF THE WEEKEND: Every time Montoya has won a pole this year, it has rained (or snowed) sometime on the original race day.

QUOTE OF THE WEEKEND: Cristiano da Matta on the victory, "This is a great day for PPI Motorsports, but this win is for Jeff Krosnoff."

QUOTE OF THE WEEKEND RUNNERUP: Cal Wells on watching his diminutive pilot hoist the winning trophy, "It was just as tall and weighed as much."

SCHEDULE: Ahhh ... a one week break.
