Paul Tracy Once Again Going in Circles

Player Management International Media Release

Las Vegas, NV (May 26, 2008) -
While Indianapolis 500 activities were abuzz over Memorial Day weekend, one would assume that open-wheel champion Paul Tracy would be missing the atmosphere that saw him walk away with a 2nd place finish in 2002.  On the contrary, Tracy was busy booking flights and preparing to depart for Chicago, Illinois, where he will be participating in a NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series test for Germain Racing on Wednesday, May 28th. 

Tracy, who made his NASCAR debut in NASCAR's #2 series in 2006, will return to the oval-track for a one-day test at Chicagoland Speedway.  While this will be Tracy's first experience in a truck, he is known as one of the most cerebral wheelmen in the business and he will adapt quickly.  Versatility is a trademark of the 2003 Champ Car World Series Champion, as Tracy has raced open-wheel cars, Grand-Am cars, NASCAR, and off-road trucks, all in the last two years. 

One would ponder Tracy's plans for the future after his awkward departure from Forsythe Racing left the race world scratching their heads.  While it would be easy for the seasoned veteran to retire and live off the earnings that he has generated through his Champ Car World Series leading 31 wins, Tracy has instead spent his newfound spare time executing a rigorous training program that has kept his body in top physical condition. 

Tracy's skill and talent is coupled with the passion and enthusiasm that has made him the Thrill from West Hill and turned him into one of the most colorful, recognized racers in the world. 

“I'm still young and I have a great passion for the sport of racing, and I plan to be a part of it for many years to come,” Tracy said from his home in Las Vegas.  “This is something that I've committed my entire life to and it has been fun to participate in the many different disciplines of the sport.  My situation with Forsythe was unfortunate, but it has opened up so many other opportunities for me and I'm really enjoying my life right now.” 

Tracy continued, “The Germain Racing team is a championship team that is committed to winning, so it humbles me to be able to take part in a test and share a Toyota Tundra with Todd Bodine.  He is one of the best in the business and I'm looking forward to getting to Chicago on Wednesday and doing whatever I can to learn from him so that I can experience my own success should I go that direction.  I'm thankful that Bob Germain is giving me this opportunity.  He is a class act and I'm happy to be a part of what he is doing in NASCAR.” 

As Germain Racing currently heads up the points chase in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, Tracy looks forward to gaining experience with a team that has done so much in NASCAR and has achieved considerable success with Toyota in the series.
