Previously at TMS: The 2008 Bombardier LearJet 550k will be Mario's first IndyCar start at TMS, however he has raced at the notoriously fast Speedway before. Dominguez raced at TMS in 2001 while competing in the Indy Lights Series. He ran as high as third before his day ended early in a late race multi-car incident.
Last Week at Milwaukee: Mario made his first IndyCar start. Dominguez had a strong first stint but had to retire the #96 car after the team's second stop due to handling issues.
Headed West: There will be many happy families in Southern California Sunday morning because the PCM squad is headed home after six consecutive weeks on the road. The team arrived in Indy on May 1st and have remained there with the exception of last week's trip to Milwaukee. The Sam Schmidt Motorsports shop has become PCM's temporary residence as the team works around the clock on their IndyCar program.
[IMAGE] Mario's Mexico City Travel Tip: "When you visit Mexico City, you must see the ancient city of Teotihuacan. The Pyramid of the Sun is just unbelievable and the third largest pyramid in the world. When you are there, make sure you walk down the Calle de Los Meurtos (street of the dead). Here you will see amazing temples and palaces. Any hotel will be able to help you get to Teotihuacan, and you have got to make sure to go. Don't worry about the weather; the sun is always out in Mexico City!"

Mario Dominguez: "I am really looking forward to returning to Texas Motor Speedway. I raced there in 2001 when I was driving in Indy Lights. The Speedway is fast, I am sure it is going to be pretty crazy. It is going to take 100% focus and a lot of help from my spotter, Lee Benthem, who always does a great job. We are still learning this series and this car. I am hoping we will make a nice step ahead in progress this weekend. It is tough to maximize the car with very little practice time, so we work very hard and make the most of every minute. We are expecting a big turn-out of executives from the Mexico City Tourism Board, so it will be great to have my compadres from my home city here. As Mexico City's official ambassador of tourism, everybody is watching and I feel a great responsibility to get back to podium finishes and race wins. It is going to take a while, but we will get there."
