For the 1989 season, Patrick Racing acquired a brand new PC18 chassis made by rival team Penske Racing. The car proved to be the class of the field, sweeping the front row with Penske drivers Rick Mears and Al Unser Sr, and Patrick Racing's Emerson Fittipaldi. Emmo domintated the race and looked to be en route to an easy victory, but in the closing laps, Al Unser Jr. caught up to Fittipaldi and passed him with 5 laps to go. The two cars ran nose to tail in that order. As they started lap 199 Unser came up on some traffic which allowed Fittipaldi to set up a pass attempt on the backstretch. As the two cars approached turn three, traffic forced them to take a dangerously shallow line into turn three - Fittipaldi's car broke loose and tagged Unser Jr sending him into the wall as Fittipaldi went on to win the race. The two drivers had such a lead on third place Raul Boesel that Unser still managed to finish in 2nd place with 198 laps completed.
