CHAMPCAR/CART: Herta Laguna Seca race notes

Bryan Herta, ...

Bryan Herta, #77 Ford Cosworth/Reynard - Finished 4th

"I am really happy. It's a great sense of relief and satisfaction. In some ways, it was a risk coming here because I have such a good record and if we didn't perform to expectations, a lot of people would have been disappointed. With this finish, I think we exceeded expectations. We learned so much that if we do get to do any more races, it will really help us. Given the limited time we ran, the car was great. On Friday morning, the car was bad but [race engineers] Lee [Dykstra] and Martin [Pare] got me what I needed. We got the most out of the time and the combination."

Tony Brunetti, Vice President and General Manager:

"It was a great job by Bryan. It's too bad the yellow came out when it did and it turned into a fuel race. We were no different than anyone else, and had to run a fuel race in the end. Our fuel engineer Don Bricker did a great job, and we actually ran out of fuel on the cool down lap. It was a great effort by everyone on the Forsythe Championship Racing Team to come here and finish fourth with teams that have been racing all season."
