INDIANAPOLIS (November 12, 2003) -- CART Champ Car titlist Paul Tracy (#3 Player's/Indeck Ford-Cosworth/Lola/Bridgestone) of Player's/Forsythe Racing visited the ESPN2 studios in New York City during his champion's media tour last Friday to appear on the network's new morning show Cold Pizza. CART Champ Car President and CEO Christopher R. Pook will follow Tracy's lead on Thursday morning, making a live appearance on the show via satellite from CART Champ Car headquarters in Indianapolis.

Pook will appear early in the 7 o'clock Eastern Time hour on the new catch-all sports morning show to speak about the current state of the Bridgestone Presents The Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford as well as what the future holds for CART Champ Car. The show re-airs on ESPN2 following the morning's live broadcast, and can be seen from 9-11 a.m.

Generally regarded as one of the most capable and qualified individuals to fill the top management position at CART Champ Car in the 24-year history of the sanctioning body, veteran businessman and Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach founder Pook took over the reins of CART in December 2001 and will see the company through its impending change in ownership that will secure the future of the series for 2004 and beyond.
