Tiago Monteiro hopes their luck changes at Mid-Ohio

After two consecutive races filled with bad luck, the team heads to Ohio tomorrow hoping that their luck will change this weekend. Fittipaldi-Dingman Racing is looking to get back to the finish line and back in the points, putting behind them the early crashes that took them out of both the Vancouver and Elkhart Lake races.

"We have had a lot of bad luck lately," said driver Tiago Monteiro. "We have definitely improved on qualifying, and I am happy about that. The team is doing an amazing job on the car. Now we need to finish races and get some results. I am definitely looking forward to Mid-Ohio; we tested well there about a month ago."

Looking back at the first half of the season, the team has had its ups and downs. Kicking off the season with a 7th place finish at St. Petersburg, FL, the team has gone on to 3 more top ten finishes (10th at Milwaukee, 9th at Laguna Seca and 10th at Toronto) along with 5 DNFs (Monterrey, Portland, Cleveland, Vancouver and Elkhart Lake). Now the team is looking to get back on track and back into the top ten.

The August 8-10th Mid-Ohio Grand Prix in Lexington Ohio will air live on SPEED Sunday, August 10, 2003 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
