Movie legend-turned-speed racer PAUL NEWMAN was forced to pull out of Saturday's (03JUL04) American GT Challenge due to a faulty gearbox.

Newman, driving a Chevrolet Corvette, was running in the top three for the majority of the race before mechanical problems forced him to pit just 15 minutes before the end of the race.
