It's time for CART to define its own future
by Mark Cipolloni

If it's not obvious to CART, it's certainly obvious to everyone else, CART has been had.  For several years now CART has tried to get the sport of Indy Car racing back together, only to be rebuffed time and again by Tony George.  In its latest move, CART tried to adopt the same engine platform and a similar chassis, in the hopes that CART and the IRL would share a common platform and be able to come together, if not as a single entity, then at least two divisions (road and oval) under one roof (sanctioning body).  That was until Roger Penske and Tony George joined forces.

Indy 500 finish ruling - Tracy appeal denied, Helio wins

The Indy Racing League has denied Paul Tracy's appeal of the outcome of Sunday's Indianapolis 500 won by Helio Castroneves. "Team Green did not present anything that was conclusive enough in any way, shape or form to change our mind," said IRL vice president of operations Brian Barnhart. CART team owner Barry Green contended that Tracy passed Castroneves before the yellow caution light came on on the 199th lap of the 200-lap race.  Both Barry Green and IRL team owner Roger Penske attended the appeal meeting this morning before Barnhart issued his ruling.  Tracy and team owner Barry Green have five days to appeal the result of the protest, which would put the final decision in the hands of IRL CEO Tony George. IRL rules call for a hearing to be held within 30 days of the filing of the appeal, unless Green and George agree to a delay.

Team Green files protest of Indy 500 finish

Team Green principals filed an official protest May 26 of the 86th Indianapolis 500 results. The hearing is scheduled for noon (EST) May 27 at the Indy Racing League corporate office in Indianapolis.  It is clear on ESPN video that Paul Tracy made the pass before the yellow light flashed.  More...

CART drivers dominate Indy 500 field

There's no hiding the fact, that the IRL looks more and more like CART everyday.  With the addition of Toyota and Honda, a race in Japan, talk of a road race or two, and a preponderance of foreign drivers, the IRL is slowly transforming into another CART.  Not only did grossly outnumbered CART drivers make a mockery of the last two Indy 500's, when the green flag drops on the 86th running of the Indianapolis 500 Sunday, 22 of the 33 cars passing under the flag stand will be driven either by competitors that regularly participate in the 2002 CART FedEx Championship Series, or by drivers who have competed previously in CART Champ Car competition.  Story

The rebirth of CART
 by Mark Cipolloni

CART detractors have predicted its demise every year for the last seven years.  Ever since Tony George split the sport in half by creating the IRL, those detractors said CART would never survive without the Indy 500 in its fold.  And every year CART has survived.  However, at the end of 2001 the cries became even louder.  '2002 is CART's last year,' came the predictions.  But in stepped Pook, and with him the rebirth of CART began.
