Paul Tracy received a ton of hardware including a Ford SVT Mustang Cobra and a check for one million dollars at Tuesday night's CART Champ Car Awards Ceremony after winning the 2003 Bridgestone Presents The Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford title, but the champ wasn't quite done racing around the world.

The day after the award ceremony, Tracy jetted off to begin the customary CART Champion's Tour, which started in Toronto Thursday. Along with the Vanderbilt Cup, Tracy was greeted by a large throng of reporters anxious to speak with the first Canadian to win a Champ Car title since 1995. After satisfying the home-country crowd, Tracy headed to New York City to prepare for a pair of national television appearances.

He will be the featured guest on Friday's popular The Late Show With David Letterman as he joins the talk-show icon and co-owner of Team Rahal on his nightly CBS show. He will be joined on the program by Gilmore Girls star Lauren Graham and musician Wyclef Jean. Tracy will also appear on Cold Pizza Friday morning, the new catch-all sports morning show on ESPN2, hosted by Jay Crawford.
