2000 Nazareth Thoughts

RACE: I think we can chalk up the new aerodynamic package as a failure just like last year.

TRACK: Combine that with a slim crowd despite a beautiful day, and maybe it is time to (sadly) say good-bye to Nazareth.

DE FERRAN: How easy it is to forget that Gil can "put the hammer down" with the best of them.

PENSKE: Congratulations, Roger. It's about time.

GUGELMIN: Surprise, surprise.

MONTOYA: Like Mo Nunn saw on that Barcelona test day, Juan's got the fastest hands around.

SERVIA: Once he makes it past the first lap, he's not half bad.

TEAM GREEN: Best pit team in CART this year.

TOYOTA: What racing gods did these guys tick off? For the second race in a row, their top driver dominates, only to have fate step in the way.

FRANCHITTI: Gee, it wasn't Servia this time.

FONTANA: Bring back Richie Hearn!

GARCIA: Slowest spin on an oval you may ever see.

GANASSI: Come on, Chip. Stop being such a baby. Have your drivers earn passes.

PITS: Seeing great pit work and watching a driver gain positions as a result of that can be fun. Sometimes. But not when it becomes the norm.

SCORING: CART taking over the timing and scoring duties from Omega/Swiss Timing is supposed to better, why?

QUOTE OF THE WEEKEND: Roger Penske for the understatement category, "I think we're back."

QUOTE OF THE WEEKEND RUNNERUP: Chip Ganassi for the premonition category, "But hey, the weekend is only halfway over for the Target team." Indeed it was.

SCHEDULE: This is like deja vu all over again -- if Milwaukee cannot be exciting, then these wing package rules have got to be nuked.
