Molson Indy Toronto Pole Award Jackpot Grows

(July 15, 1998) -- The Marlboro Pole Award rollover bonus went unclaimed for the 16th consecutive event at Cleveland, meaning that the potential Marlboro Pole Award payout at the Molson Indy Toronto is a record $280,000, including $10,000 for winning the pole and $270,000 in rollover funds. The Molson Indy marks more than one year since the rollover bonus, which grows at a rate of $15,000 per event until a victory from the pole is recorded, was last claimed by Zanardi at Cleveland in 1997. Including the $100,000 winner's purse, the potential payout for a victory from the pole at Toronto is $380,000. Andretti's 1991 victory was the only one to come from the pole in 12 previous events at Toronto.
