CART Online (February 25, 1998) -- Mark Blundell (Motorola PacWest Mercedes), winner of CART's inaugural event on the California Speedway oval last year, was one of five FedEx Championship Series drivers who tested on the Speedway's 1.3-mile infield road course Friday and Saturday. He was joined by Tracy (KOOL Reynard Honda) and Dario Franchitti (KOOL Reynard Honda) of Team KOOL Green, Alex Barron (Castrol-Degree Reynard Toyota) of All American Racers and Robby Gordon (Reynard Toyota) of Arciero-Wells Racing. Blundell was pleased with the outcome after logging more than 400 miles over the two days. "We had a very good and productive two days," he said. "We went to Fontana with a big test program with lots of new ideas and developments to try. We came away very happy."
