Franchitti Fifth in Season Closer

The 73-lap finale of the 2002 CART season, held at Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez circuit in Mexico City, got underway at 3:08pm, and on the opening lap Tony Kanaan stormed into the lead from fourth position at the start. After clocking the most lead laps and pitting for a second time on lap 40, Kanaan dramatically lost his grip on the race when his fuel caught fire as he tried to reenter the course. It was Dario Franchitti who now found himself in first position, but a slow pit stop during a full-course caution on lap 52 lost him a lot of valuable time. In the end, despite Honda drivers leading for two-thirds of the entire race, the best result they could achieve was Franchitti's fifth-place finish.
