1999 Milwaukee Thoughts

TRACK: The way short ovals were meant to be built. They were on the right track back in 1903.

RACE: The opposite of Gateway. Started out like gangbusters -- that run up to the front of the field by Michael Andretti is stuff legends are made of -- then settled into a cat and mouse game, but ended on a slow note.

TRACY: It always helps to have what Paul has -- talent, aggressiveness, speed -- but it helps even more to have luck on your side.

VASSER: At least he has a lot to look forward to after a fine run.

SWIFT: There's nothing wrong with this car. Other teams just need to learn how to run it.

ANDRETTI: Sometimes the fastest car doesn't always win. Especially, with yet another blown pit stop.

NEWMAN-HAAS: Sorry Parker, it wasn't a clutch problem. Not for a moment. Once again, the Newman-Haas team was out to lunch on another pit stop.

MANSEAU: The guy gets completely run over from head to toe by a 1,500 pound car and he suffers only bruises, and will probably be back in action at the next race. The next time I hear about some zillionaire basketball player missing a game for a sprained pinky, I'm going to barf.

FRANCHITTI: Another driver who had a fast car only to loss his race on a pit miscue.

FITTIPALDI: Christain has always been pretty steady, but it's still a surprise that he is the only driver this year to complete every single lap.

MONTOYA: People with a heart condition should not watch this guy race...

TEAM GANASSI: Another race, another fuel miscalculation.

DELLA PENNA: Richie Hearn needs to give serious consideration to leaving this team before his career goes into the toilet.

JONES: PJ must be thanking his lucky stars there are some mighty fine drivers in the CART series.

HERTA: You have to praise Bryan's honesty, but you can't be championship material if you are so uncompetitive on the short ovals.

ABC: Kudos to last week's coverage, boos to this week's. Too much missed as they cut segments out to squeeze the tape delay into two hours.

S. HATTORI: Only one car crashed into the wall all weekend. We won't spoil the surprise by telling you who it was...

VITOLO: Maybe he should have dropped out for "handling" problems.

UNSER: Was Little Al even in this race?

TEAM GORDON: Inconsistency is the only consistency this team displays.

QUOTE OF THE WEEKEND: PJ Jones after he black-walled the outside turn 4 wall during qualifying, "I just thought I would spend a little of Mr. P's (Pat Patrick's) money."

SCHEDULE: Okay folks, time for some road racing! You'll start seeing some drivers getting back to the front of the pack such as Kanaan, Papis, and Herta.
