CART HOLDS OFF ON RESPONDING TO "INDYCAR" LICENSING ACTION

     CART officials "remained silent" yesterday regarding
Indianapolis Motor Speedway President Tony George's demand the
body stop using the term "IndyCar."  CART spokesperson Adam Saal:
"It's gone to our lawyers, who will give it the once over."  In
his letter to CART, George, the founder of the rival Indy Racing
League, whose qualifying rules are preventing CART drivers from
participating in the Indy 500, said he expects CART to find a
name "that [does not] falsely suggest a connection with the Indy
500."  CART team owner Derrick Walker, who is convinced CART is
"gone from the Indy 500 forever," suggests a new name:  "The best
cars."  Three-time Indy 500 champ Bobby Unser agrees with
George's goal of reduced costs, but believes he should not have
used the Indy 500 as leverage (Beth Tuschak, USA TODAY, 3/21).
