EDMONTON - It was one and done for Paul Tracy at the Edmonton Indy.

Not even one, actually, as the Thrill from West Hill didnt even turn a lap before a three-car wreck ended his afternoon.

Its just been a horrible weekend for us, said the crowd favourite. Its frustrating that we got taken out on the first lap.

It started with Alex Tagliani bumping with Graham Rahal on turn 5 of the 13-turn airport circuit. I didnt see exactly what happened, but Graham said he got hit by Tag and I came around the corner at 130 miles per hour and he rolled right out in front of me and Danica and I had nowhere to go.

The crash caps a weekend that seemed doomed from the start. Tracy and the team struggled mightily trying to find a workable set-up and wound up starting 25th in a field of 26 cars. Then, one lap in, its over.

Its frustrating, said Tracy. We want to run well, show well in Canada. The last three or four years weve always run well here. Its just disappointing.
