2000 Milwaukee Thoughts

TRACK: Nearly a full house braved the weather all day on Sunday. Then, over half returned on a workday which started out poorly as well. It's been said that Milwaukee has the most dedicated open wheel fans in the world. I dare anyone to challenge that.

RACE: When stats don't match reality. Nineteen cars out of 23 are running at the end. Despite only two yellow flags, nine cars are on the lead lap, and an amazing 18 are within one lap of the leader. Then why, with all these cars so close in touch with one another on a one mile track, was there so little action?

TOYOTA: It's way beyond "finally." What the heck -- finally!

MONTOYA: Ever notice that Juan slices through traffic so effortlessly relative to his competitors?

ANDRETTI: It's always fun to watch Michael drive The Milwaukee Mile.

CARPENTIER: Patrick really seems to know his way around this place.

NAKANO: Okay, who put Hiro in this car?

SWIFT: Isn't.

FIRST LAP: Hey, nobody played Servia this week.

DE FERRAN: How could Penske mess up the fuel calculations like that?

CASTRONEVES, BLUNDELL, JOURDAIN: Here's something bizarre. These three guys finished in the exact same position as the last race. Except, last time they crashed. This time they took the checkered flag.

QUOTE OF THE WEEKEND: In the what-do-you-think-we-are-fools category, Michael Andretti on the end of the race, "It was close. We were about five seconds behind and got it down to one. We basically ran out of laps."

SCHEDULE: Off the ovals and back on to the street and road circuits. Oh, wait a minute. It's Detroit. Never mind.
