r qir ii"W"W Hu ijii"(T"ii"ii"frTi'nnriy f mn G8 The Ottawa Citizen, Saturday, November 19, 1994 Sports AUTO RACING Sullivan returning to In dy Cars SouthamStar Network DETROIT Danny Sullivan, who recorded at least one victory in eight of his 10 full seasons in the PPG IndyCar World Series, is returning to the series in 1995 after spending a year on the sidelines. Sullivan will drive a Reynard-FordCosworth for the PacWest Racing Group, which made its debut in the series in '94 with Scott Sharp and Dominic Dobson as drivers. Sullivan, 44, who now lives in Aspen, Colo., had 17 victories and 19 pole positions in 158 IndyCar starts, earning $8,254,673. He won the Indianapolis 500 in 1985 and the series championship in 1988. When Galles Racing dropped him after the 1993 season in a major cutback, Sullivan was unable to find an IndyCar ride. He tried to crack the NASCAR stock car series in a partial schedule with little success. "PacWest is a new team on the block but it has a great deal of experience in its personnel," Sullivan said. "I hope to be able to help the team jell into a contender." Sharp is expected to continue with PacWest in 1995. "I'm hoping the sponsorship will be in place for my 1995 ride soon," Sharp said. "Being a teammate of a driver as experienced as Danny Sullivan can only help my career." Moore on move Meantime, Greg Moore, 19, from Maple Ridge, B.C., who has demonstrated strong potential in two seasons at the Indy Lights level, will have his first try at driving an Indy Car next week. Moore will put a Penske Racing car through its paces in a test session at Nazareth Speedway in f Pennsylvania. But he won't run on t the full oval track. A Penske team official said that no commitment has been made to Moore beyond the two days of testing. "We are testing some electronics for the 1995 cars and need road course corners for the test," said Penske spokesman Dan Luginbuhl " during the IndyCar awards dinner ; here. "We can use cones and the pit - lane on the Nazareth track to create I a small road course. "We were impressed with Greg Moore's work in the Lights series and had talked with him and his father Rick Moore during the season. We felt this was a good chance . to take a look at Greg in an IndyCar and give him some seat time in a low-pressure situation. "Because it's not the oval track he'll run on, there's no comparison of his times to anyone else's. We " want to look at how smooth he is in the big car." However, a source close to the Penske team claims that Moore is being checked as a possible test driver for the team to ease the load on regulars Al Unser Jr., and Emerson Fittipaldi. "Right now, we have no plans for a test driver but, of course, that could change in the new year," Luginbuhl said. NOTES: One of IndyCar's great- , est drivers, Rick Mears, will be an adviser to the organization on track design and drivers' issues. Mears will work on the street course layouts in an effort to include more room to pass. Two of the series' biggest events, the Vancouver Molson Indy and the Detroit race on a Belle Isle street circuit, are on courses where passing is (a) impossible or (b) very risky. After signing a new five-year deal through 2000 with the Long Beach, Calif., race, IndyCar now has long-term agreements with 16 of the 17 tracks on its '95 schedule, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway being the lone exception. IMS president Tony George has started his own Indy Racing League but no tracks or drivers have been announced for it The Toronto Star Rain shrinks golf tourney in Japan MIYAZAKI, Japan (AP) Heavy rains washed out Friday's round at the Dunlop Phoenix golf tournament, cutting the event short to 54 holes for the first time in its 21-year history. The only play on the second day was by 18 players who had to complete their rain-delayed first rounds. Among that group was Vancouver's Rick Gibson, who shot a 69 to sit three strokes off the lead shared by Tom Watson, Barry Lane, Todd Hamilton and Ernie Els. The second round has been rescheduled to today, with the field starting from both the first and 10th tees. The 84-man field will be cut to the top 60 and ties after the completion of that round. The final round will be held on Sunday starting from the first tee only. Because of the loss of the round, the total prize purse of 200 million yen ($2.85 million Cdn) will be cut by 25 per cent to 150 million yen ($2.14 million) First prize will fall to 27 million yen ($385,000).
