In a weekend of mixed weather conditions Bruno Junqueira took his first CART win at Road America, round 14 of the season. His teammate Memo Gidley who was joined Target/Chip Ganassi in round 8 had a tough race. While showing great pace Gidley lost control after a wheel crossed a wet curb and crashed head on into the Billy Mitchell Bridge splitting the tub of the car in two. The bridge was removed after the 2006 season when a tunnel was created to cross under the track.
The Phoenix engine, a reworked version of the Mercedes-Benz IC108F only made four races with Max Wilson driving for Arciero-Brook Racing WinnerB2B.com. After missing a couple of races the team returned under the control of Larry Blair and used Ford Cosworth engines.
