Wheeling, Illinois:

Forsythe Championship Racing and Mexican driver Mario Dominguez announced they ended their relationship on Monday, effective immediately. Dominguez, 30, who signed with the team at the start of the 2005 season, earned one of his two Champ Car World Series victories last year and matched his career-best fifth-place finish in the points. He is third in the 2006 standings after the first four races. But Dominguez has also been responsible for two crashes which have taken out teammate and former series champion Paul Tracy. The Forsythe team said the departure of Dominguez was because "changes in the engineering structure of the team no longer suit both parties.'' "We've been struggling with the development of our cars and our setups for some time because of very different driver setup references,'' said Neil Micklewright, vice president of team operations. Sebastien Bourdais of France has won all four races this season and holds a 31-point lead over RuSport's Justin Wilson. Tracy is a distant seventh in the points. (AP)
