Paul Tracy commented – "The race promoter here in Edmonton really hit a home run. It feels good to see all the enthusiastic fans and the grandstands and suites nearly full on a Friday."

Nelson Philippe added, "I like the track very much, I’m really amazed by the fans, the crowd here is a big boost for the drivers, it’s only Friday and it looks like Sunday – it’s people everywhere." In the photo to left fans cram outside the pit entrance to get a glimpse of the drivers.
