John Andretti notches first Indy winJohn Andretti came up yesterday with his first Indy-car victory by taking the inaugural Gold Coast Indy, the first CART race outside of North America.Andretti, who turned 28 Tuesday, continued the tradition of his racing family, joining his uncle, Mario, and cousin, Michael, as winners on the Indy-car circuit.The winner took the top spot four laps from the end when three-time series champion Rick Mears lost control and his five-second lead.As he tried to pass the slower cars of Randy Lewis and Dean Hall, Mears drove too deep into one of the 12 turns on the quick 2.793-mile circuit, sliding to a stop at the end of a runoff area as Lewis and Hall collided behind him.Andretti wound up beating Bobby Rahal to the finish line by 12.7 seconds, with Mears third, very nearly catching Rahal on the final lap.1.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Emerson Fittipaldi out-dueled Michael Andretti to win the provisional pole for tomorrow's Vancouver Molson-Indy, splashing through a rainy opening qualifying session for a fast lap of 89.979 mph.Andretti, who won the pole last year for the inaugural Indy-car race at the downtown Pacific Place exhibition grounds, wound up the runner-up in the first of two sessions of time trials with a lap of 88.130.With the daylong rain forcing the drivers to use grooved tires, rather than racing slicks, everyone fell far short of Andretti's 1990 record of 98.540, which was set on a slightly different track configuration.

MONTEREY, Calif. -- All Mario Andretti wanted from his 407th and final IndyCar race was to finish, to be running on the track when he saw the checkered flag for the last time.He came up four laps short, disappointing not only himself but also most of the estimated 75,000 who swarmed over the hills of Laguna Seca on a warm Sunday for the final race of the season.The "Last Lap of Mario," as the Bank of America 300 was advertised, came on Lap 80, with Andretti sitting on pit row, his engine having expired.
