2000 Toronto Thoughts

RACE: Ignore the anti-climactic ending, that was a great street race.

TRACK: Well, they got through the first turn...

ANDRETTI: The real class of the field. It just took him till the end before he could show it.

FERNANDEZ: Another strong run at Toronto.

TRACY: Back in the hunt.

DA MATTA: It's just a matter of time.

PPI: Chip must be gnashing his teeth...

TAGLIANI: Truly, the number one driver on Player's.

SERVIA: Extremely aggressive drive. A lot of fun to watch.

MONTOYA: This time patience, care, and heads up driving did not pay off.

MORENO: The racing gods play no favorites.

FITTIPALDI: Well, well, well. Remember that outburst at Detroit, Christian? The one where it is always the driver who is behind who is at fault according to the "rules of the road" as you so eloquently put it? Must be really hard to swallow this one, eh Christian? To smash Gil from behind and then try your best not to take blame. You tried to deflect fault, but alas, you had to eat your words.

FRANCHITTI: Talk about getting stuck!

FIRST LAP: Did you notice the speedy dry lining the end of Lakeshore Blvd. heading into the third turn? Could the track have been slipperier than normal for the first lap, and that is what caught the drivers out?

HANDS: What a great segment put together by ESPN comparing the hands of Juan Montoya to Mark Blundell in a side by side split screen on the same part of the track. That sure told a lot, though I doubt Blundell appreciated it.

INTERESTING STAT OF THE WEEKEND: This was Michael Andretti's first road or street victory since Vancouver, 1996. Has it really been that long?

QUOTE OF THE WEEKEND: Kenny Brack on his adventure on lap 89 while battling Tagliani and de Ferran, "I just outbraked myself."

QUOTE OF THE WEEKEND RUNNERUP: Oriol Servia commenting on his own mistake in that great battle with Fernandez, "I guess that's why they have the category called rookie."

SCHEDULE: Let's pray for a safe superspeedway race.
