Servia Validates at Montreal

Oroil Servia validated himself as a capable Champ car driver by winning the Montreal Race Sunday. Servia captured the lead after Race control penalized Glock, who was leading at the time, for cutting a corner. Glock was warned the first time he did it when Servia attempted to pass and the second time he had to give up the position. The win was Servia's first ever as a Champ car driver.

The race did not draw well as only 95,000 attended the 3 day event. There were fewer bleachers available this year than last and they did not appear to be full. Rumor has it that the Champ car event has no future in Montreal!

WickerBIll Sez;

Where did 40,000 fans go?
The promoter is limited to 2 events per year by law. What kind of a deal is that?
No wonder the promoter wants NASCAR there!
KK says they are working on a backup for the event should this one be cancelled.
I say replace it with Road America!
