The race was won by series d├ębutant Nigel Mansell, the reigning Formula One World Champion from 1992. Mansell also became the first person to win their first IndyCar race since Graham Hill had won the 1966 Indianapolis 500.

Due to the appearance of Mansell in the CART World Series, over 800 press passes were given out by the race organisers. This was second only in number for the series to the amount of press at the Indianapolis 500.
