2000 Vancouver Thoughts

TRACK: I know Vancouver is a wonderfully successful event, but the track is no better than Detroit.

RACE: It's never fun to watch a race involving team orders like in F1, but when dealing with Team Green, you don't have any other choice.

TEAM GREEN: Note to other team owners -- want to do well, then sign your drivers to secure contracts, so they are not distracted by the Silly Season.

TRACY: Well, well, well. Look who's right back in the championship hunt. In fact a bona fide contender once again. This is certainly going to get interesting.

FRANCHITTI: At least he finally led a lap this year.

FERNANDEZ: The strategy of getting top five finishes for all the races down the stretch to win a championship is certainly a viable strategy. But Adrian, don't openly state that is what you are trying to do. It's not the type of driver fans love to latch onto.

BRACK: A miserable weekend salvaged by a sixth place finish.

ANDRETTI: Time to crank it up again.

GIDLEY: The points streak had to come to an end eventually, but a shame nonetheless.

JOURDAIN: A lousy ending to a weekend that started with so much promise.

CART: Next time play fair, and tow Jourdain's car in to allow him to finish qualifying.

PLAYERS: The virtual Team Green for this race.

TAGLIANI: Back to driving school for this guy.

HONDA: Without a doubt, it was Honda's weekend. And maybe the rest of the season.

BARRON: Not a great return to the series, but not a terrible one either.

GREAT STAT OF THE WEEKEND: The top six drivers are now separated by a victory's worth of points, 20, with only 11 points separating the top five. Wow! And we all thought last year was close.

QUOTE OF THE WEEKEND: Barry Green answering a reporter's question on all the rumors surrounding his future, "Hey, I can't keep up with all the rumors myself. I tell you, I'm going to be driving a pink Formula Ford, and you're going to be the team manager!"

QUOTE OF THE WEEKEND RUNNERUP: Paul Tracy on the Team Green deal between he and Franchitti, "Typically, we're going to race until the final pit stop, but in the past we've had our incidents before the last stop!"

SCHEDULE: Ring. Ring. Hello, Mr. Herta? Are you busy this weekend?
