POOK-A-BOO, WE SEE YOU? ESPN SAYS CART CLOSE ON NEW CEO
Published November 3, 2000
Toyota Grand Prix Exec Dir Chris Pook could be named CART's next CEO shortly, replacing Bobby Rahal, according to ESPN2's Robin Miller. Miller, on Pook: "I think he's the man. I talked to Bobby Rahal yesterday, I talked to Pook this morning, they're very non-committal, but I know this, the owners that were at [a recent] presentation said it was pretty dazzling, which you would expect. This guy knows the ins and outs of this business. ... He's got enough connections and enough clout and enough class and enough sass to run this thing. Now, [is CART] smart enough to hire him?" Miller said CART's decision comes down to between Pook and an exec "in the entertainment business." Miller: "[Pook] would be good for open-wheel racing because I think [he] would try and get [open-wheel racing] back together with Tony George [and the IRL]" ("RPM 2Night," ESPN2, 11/2).
