1999 Gateway Thoughts

TRACK: Seemed to be a disappointing crowd. Whether it's CART or IRL, attendance at big time open wheel oval racing just isn't what it used to be.

RACE: Now that's more like it! Started out slow ... got better ... got even better ... got better than that ... simply became great.

ANDRETTI: Who says an Andretti cannot win on Memorial Day Weekend?

NEVES: Ya gotta love a driver who leaves everything emotionally out on the track.

HOGAN RACING: Just how many times can this team come soooooo close?

MORENO: There's a reason why he is called "supersub."

MONTOYA: Is it possible for a mortal to have the sort of car control that Juan has?

GANASSI: How can such a successful team miscalculate on their fuel mileage twice in just six races?

RESTARTS: Finally, they are willing to wave off absurd jumps on restarts. Funny though, how they seemed to only do it to Montoya...

PIT STOPS: The first round of pit stops was like trying to find a parking spot at the grocery store on a Saturday morning.

TRACY: That's it. Barry Green has got to fire this guy!

FRANCHITTI: Talk about being diplomatic. Sounds like Dario is running for political office.

GORDON: A bitter disappointment for what could have been a great race for him.

CARPENTIER: Just nowhere to go.

HERTA: This must be what it feels like to suddenly be in the middle of a stampede.

ABC: The best intro ever done for a racing broadcast.

TETHERS: They definitely seemed to work. Now put them on the rears.

S. HATTORI: Almost. Almost. But that morning warmup will get you every time...

VITOLO: DNF'ed by the old "handling" problem. Why don't they just rename this the "Vitolo DNF"?

MARQUES: Tarso, Tarso, Tarso. This isn't F1. Stay in the car.

UNSER: Yeah, it was nice to see him in the lead, and the crowd certainly loved it. But where did he ultimately finish? Got a point? Golly gee.

BLUNDELL: Sheesh, even a cervical collar has to have the sponsor's patch.

QUOTE OF THE WEEKEND: After hearing that Michael Andretti was doing a lot of praying in those last few laps, Helio Castro-Neves said, "I was praying as well, but I don't think God heard me."

SCHEDULE: Milwaukee -- usually the finest one-mile oval in all the land. But, will the superspeedway wings ruin it? Or, will we see the dicing we saw at Gateway?
