Both Forsythe Cars Taken Out On First Lap Accident
Milwaukee, Wisconsin -- June 4th, 2006 -- Today both Forsythe Championship Racing drivers, Paul Tracy and Mario Dominguez, took a major blow to their championship hunts after getting involved in a three car accident on the first lap that left both cars damaged and unable to continue.
Mario Dominguez - DNF - #7 Orgullo de Mexico/INDECK Ford-Cosworth/Bridgestone/Lola
"I'm not sure what happened, I have to see the replay to know exactly how things went. I went inside to pass Bruno (Junqueira) coming into Turn 3 and I got under him and I thought we had enough room but coming to the exit of the turn we started pushing up and we touched and spun. It's a shame because you hate to finish off a weekend like this; we could've had another good result. We'll just put it behind us and move on to Portland."
Paul Tracy - DNF - #3 INDECK Ford-Cosworth/Bridgestone/Lola
"It's very frustrating; this is the second time that Mario and I touched in four races. I saw Mario and Bruno go into Turn 3 side by side and they were very close, they touched and started spinning and I did my best to avoid it. I went in between them and I thought I was going to have enough room. Mario was in a slow spin and he barely touched me, I floored the gas pedal to try to keep if off the wall but it didn't work and I smacked the wall and that was it for the weekend."
The next round of the Bridgestone Presents the Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford will take place at Portland International Raceway June 16-18. Last year the Forsythe Team had a strong run with Tracy and Dominguez finishing third and fourth.
