Mario Domínguez - Driver
"I have to be honest and say that Portland presents a pretty big challenge for me. In all the years I raced here in Dayton Indy Lights, I never really got into a rhythm and you have to develop a good rhythm through the S-turns in order to be fast here. Of course, the Champ Car is a completely different beast so hopefully the transition to this car will help me get a handle on the track too."

Fast Facts

* G.I. Joe's 200 marks Domínguez's 6th start in the CART FedEx Championship Series.

* This will be Dominguez's fourth start on the Portland International Raceway circuit, following three Dayton Indy Lights events. His best finish here was a sixth place in 2000.

* Domínguez currently stands 19th in the Drivers Championship with two points. Fellow Indy Lights graduate Townsend Bell took the lead in the Rookie of the Year competition last week with his seventh place finish at Mazda Raceway at Laguna Seca.
