      Oh...that's right....wild speculation and rumor mongering is only allowed on the IRL board.

        Perhaps PT could try the Tour de France next year. That would be an interesting career switch. Could you imagine him amongst all the Frenchies...

          Tracy does this just about every contract year... its pretty much common practice for him now.

            Could someone say what the article says? I don't feel like registering.

            Thanks in advance.

              He's Ready to Cut Short His Career With CART
              John Weyler

              Paul Tracy says he feels "betrayed" by CART and hinted he could be the next defector to the rival Indy Racing League.

              Irritated by two recent penalty rulings, he says he now understands why Tony George, a former member of the CART board of directors, founded the IRL, and why engine makers Honda and Toyota, Team Penske and Michael Andretti have fled to the rival circuit.

              "I supported CART when nobody wanted to support them," he said. "It's frustrating."

              That frustration led to a heated exchange with CART Chief Executive Chris Pook during a party in Vancouver last week.

              The penalties sparked Tracy's ire, but CART may have provided the final straw when it fined him $15,000 for wearing shorts to a news conference in Cleveland this month.

                "hinted" , "may have provided" ... not real substantial. A direct quote on his understanding of why the others left would be useful.

                Still, where there's smoke...

                If the last superstar leaves... oof! That's a shot to the midsection of CART.

                  Didn't we already discuss this quote?
                  One driver's "fuel strategy" is another driver's "speed up or we will park you!"

                    It must work. He always has a job.

                      Question! If PT got fined for wearing shorts to a press conferance, did CARP get charged by the inch for running nearly naked through the pits?

                          Do you people seriously think PT would drive in the series that screwed him out of an Indy win last year?

                          You'll see Paul in NASCAR before he's in the IRL.

                            Good.
                            Proud to be a complainer.

                              Are you suggesting at if it had gone the other way and the IRL had screwed Helio out of the win last year then he wouldn't be driving in the IRL this year? I don't buy it.
