IRL: Pikes Peak: Kelley Racing race report

Scott Sharp -- #8 Delphi/Dallara/Toyota/Firestone--Quote

"It has been a really difficult weekend for the Delphi team. We started the race loose and just gave up way too much ground in the first stint-- over a lap and a half-- and you just can't do that and be competitive. We tried to gamble a bit on pit strategy and get a lap back and that didn't pan out for us. It was just a day to hang in there and get to the end."

*The Honda Indy 225 was Sharp's 94th career start, his 86th consecutive IRL IndyCar start--an IndyCar record-- and his seventh season with Kelley Racing.

* Pikes Peak Record--In 2003 Sharp started 10th and finished 11th, while in 2002, he started fifth and finished fifth. At PPIR Sharp has three top-ten finishes and four top-five starts.

*Sharp's victory in April 2003 at Twin Ring Motegi, Japan was his eighth career victory.
