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.

The Oscar winner ended up finishing 15th in the 19-car field.
