DAN WHELDON - # 1 GEMSTAR PACWEST LIGHTS
Position: 4th (Running) Best Speed: 183.526mph </pre> "We brought it home, and that's the main thing," said Wheldon. "I'm happy to have finished in the top four - from a points standpoint. It's too bad Mario went out of the race early because I think we could have worked together to make a charge. I did try to pear up with Halliday on the restart, but we couldn't get the jump we needed to make things closer. I'm disappointed not to win, but we'll look forward to redeeming ourselves in Toronto next week." <pre> MARIO DOMINGUEZ - # 17 DEL VALLE CORONA TELEVISA PACWEST LIGHTS
Position: 10th (Mechanical) Best Speed: 182.808mph </pre> "This weekend was really an emotional roller coaster," said Dominguez. "Yesterday, after I captured my second pole of the year (third of his career), I was very happy and confident I could put up some good results today and win this race. I led about 18 laps before the problems started. My engine had a major misfire and I was losing power. I came into the pits so my crew could have a look, and when they found nothing I went back out. Unfortunately, the engine was still misfiring and I finally had to park it. It's such a huge disappointment considering how well we ran all weekend, but there is nothing I can do except regroup and head to Toronto."
