IRL: Texas II: Chip Ganassi Racing race report


#1 Scott Dixon- Toyota / G-Force /Firestone

"The Target car was much stronger at the end than it was at the start. We didn't have enough front wing which gave me too much understeer, and dropped me back early on. The Target team short filled me on one of our stops in order to gain a few spots and in the end we were running really well with the leaders. Sixth place in the race and tenth place in the driver points is a fair finish for a season that has been difficult for everyone on the Target team. Everyone has worked hard this year but we're happy to put it behind us now and look to the future. Next season the Target team expects to be back on top."

#10 Darren Manning- Toyota / G-Force /Firestone

On not racing this weekend at Texas:

"It is a shame to end the season in this manner. I feel really good but I will certainly abide by the doctor's recommendations. I have learned and gained a vast amount of experience from the Target team and we improved steadily throughout the year. I feel badly for my crew who worked so hard this year and we all would have liked to have had a chance to end the season on a better note. It's a bit of a let down but at the same time I know that I have a lot to look forward to as the Target team prepares for the 2005 IndyCar Series season."
