From the top 3 finishers press conference for the Firestone Indy 400 at Michigan International Speedway...

Q. When Hornish was driving off in the sunset, he had close to an eight-second lead. Were you beginning to think, "They gave them a little bit too much of a break," as a Toyota driver?

ALEX BARRON: Who was that?

Q. Hornish, eight seconds ahead.

ALEX BARRON: Did you say the Cosworth? [my note] :laugh: [/my note]Did I misunderstand?

Q. Do you think they gave him a break.

ALEX BARRON: I get it. Sorry. I'm a little slow. Yeah, I mean, I was running with him for 20 laps straight. Like five laps from the end, I don't know if the funny button got pushed or what, but he took off. He had a little bit more power. I was talking on the radio saying, "Something happened. The engine changed note and he's pulling forward a little bit." I didn't know what it was. I didn't have one of those so I was a little bit worried (laughter). He seemed to come back the last two laps. He seemed to come back somewhere to what my speed was, then he just got a good run.

Is that the same time that ABC said that Pancho Carter told Sam to "pull the pin?"

Chip Ganassi's comment after the Race was typical Chipster!

"Maybe the series will let us build a "one-off" engine, and lets see what happens"
