Fernandez Narrowly Misses Podium in Fourth Place

Round 14 of this season's CART championship was the last of the four consecutive mid-summer races and, for the first time since 1991, the venue was the temporary street circuit in the suburbs of Denver, Colorado. The skies were cloudy as the race began at 1:05pm. When Paul Tracy's brakes locked on turn five of the opening lap, Dario Franchitti, second in the championship standings, could not avoid colliding into his teammate's rear. That marked the end of Franchitti's race. The two Fernandez Racing drivers were in good form from the beginning, with Adrian Fernandez in second place and Shinji Nakano in fourth, until gearbox trouble forced Nakano out of the action on lap 64 while in third position. The bad luck of the Honda-powered drivers continues, although Fernandez did finish with a satisfactory fourth place.
