POOK-A-BOO, WE SEE YOU? ESPN SAYS CART CLOSE ON NEW CEO

          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).
