Bummer for them.

So this leaves Paul Newman as the last American affiliated with Champ Car, right?

    Thing is, open wheel racing (both series) needs to be able to afford to pay American drivers $3 mil a year plus prize money. All the better reason to make running a car as inexpensive as possible.

    He'll be back in 2009.... maybe midseason of 2008.... I just dont see him doing well for the new toyota team....

    I bet Cedric wishes he was stuck on a desert island right about now...

    Cedric's boy Nelson Philippe with the flowing hair actually won the Champ Car race in Australia.

    I remember Nelson could have won at Cleveland but his car quit, and in Toronto before he ran over someone....

    I wonder if CED is on long term with them?
