MISSED OPPORTUNITY? In Ft. Worth, Carlos Munoz notes Helio Castroneves’ 4.7-second victory in the Firestone 550 "took the air out of the national prime-time telecast, touted by IndyCar and TMS as a chance for the country to catch one of the tight finishes the series and track are known for producing" (FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 6/10). In Indianapolis, Curt Cavin writes ABC's Firestone 550 broadcast was a "missed opportunity" for IndyCar. Cavin: "The race was difficult to follow, the broadcast was dull and generally I found the whole thing not one of IndyCar’s better moments" (INDYSTAR.com, 6/10).
