After a one-year absence ChampCar was back at Road America with Speedy Dan Clarke taking the field to the green flag. A 42 minute red flag took place when Katherine Legge had a rear wing fail sending her car into the wall at The Kink. She escaped without major injury but her freshly painted Ford Cares Warriors in Pink was destroyed. The all American kid A.J. Allmendinger took the win for Forsythe Racing.
The next generation of ChampCar Panoz DP01 chassis made some demonstration laps complete with donuts complements of Roberto Moreno.
