Less than exciting news for fans of Mario Dominguez and PCM, courtesy of an IndyCar press release.
Pacific Coast Motorsports to miss Iowa race: Pacific Coast Motorsports will not participate in the Iowa Corn Indy 250 presented by Pioneer at Iowa Speedway.As a business buzzword "re-evaluate" has a number of connotations, nearly all of which being negative for current members of the team. Perhaps the PCM "partners" decided to "re-evaluate" their funding, although as you can see there is nothing mentioned above that explicitly states that as the case.
"I've decided to keep the team at our headquarters in California to re-evaluate and strengthen our program," said team owner Tyler Tadevic. "Pacific Coast Motorsports and the Mexico City Tourism Board are committed to the IndyCar Series. PCM has a contract with Mexico City through 2009, and this has always been our building year. Along with our partners, we have determined we are going to take some time to re-evaluate our resources and determine how to strengthen our 2008 program and better prepare for a competitive 2009 season."
The team debuted with driver Mario Dominguez at Indianapolis, gaining valuable practice time in May although it failed to qualify for the Indianapolis 500. The team competed at Milwaukee and Texas, finishing 26th and 21st, respectively.
