Franchitti sneaking up on CART title
Franchitti, who finished second in the 1999 CART series to Juan Pablo Montoya wants to switch to Formula 1 next year when his contract with Team Kool Green runs out. The problem for the Scotsman is that there are no obvious job vacancies, despite rumors that there might be a job available at Jaguar Racing. Winning the CART title would give Franchitti his best chance in F1 as taking the CART title-winner would be a bonus for F1 and F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone would be sure to help Franchitti find a job.
It was a bad day for Brack who crashed out after a collision with his team mate Max Papis.
