CHAMPCAR/CART: Team Kool Green Texas postponement

PAUL TRACY, ...

PAUL TRACY, #26 TEAM KOOL GREEN HONDA/REYNARD:

"This is obviously a tough decision for CART to have to make. We need to make sure the race will be safe, and I support this decision. I feel bad for KOOL, our other sponsors, and the fans."

DARIO FRANCHITTI, #27 TEAM KOOL GREEN HONDA/REYNARD:

"I feel CART has made the right decision. It was a difficult decision and we're 100 percent behind them. I'm just very sorry for the fans, sponsors, and everyone concerned."

BARRY GREEN, TEAM OWNER:

"It was a medical decision to postpone this race. It was the right decision and it was the only decision. Driver safety comes first with CART and we've done a tremendous job developing our cars with that in mind. " CART has learned a lot this weekend. But because of the speeds we're running and the g-forces the drivers are experiencing, we're operating in a whole new area for the drivers. So as a community - CART, the team, drivers, manufacturers, suppliers, and sponsors - we decided it was best to postpone the race until we can learn more."
