The 1990 CART PPG Indy Car World Series season was the 12th national championship season of American open wheel racing sanctioned by CART. In 1990 team Bayside Motorsports, known previously in American sport car racing, competed in the series for the second season. Bayside Disposal Racing team scored three victories in the 12 Hours of Sebring (1981, 1987, 1988). Team owner Bruce Leven, a Seattle businessman and gentlemen driver enlisted such drivers as Peter Gregg, Hurley Haywood, Al Holbert, Scott Pruett, Hans Stuck, Bob Wollek and others to compete in the IMSA GT series in Porsche 935s and 962s. Leven, whose first venture on the CART circuit in 1989 was done with second-hand equipment, has purchased two 1990 Lola chassis and up-to-date Cosworth engines for an expanded campaign this year. Dominic Dobson, 32, returned as the driver, and increased involvement by prime sponsor Texaco/Havoline has allowed Leven to improve the machinery and expand the schedule from eight races to 11. Dobson drove the Bayside Lola to 22nd place at Indy 500, and finished 8th at Meadowlands and Toronto. His final position in the championship standings was 19th with 12 points. Dobson continued to race in CART until 1994, collecting over 60 starts in the series, with a best finish of 3rd at the Michigan 500 in 1994. Dobson also drove numerous IMSA and other Sport car races, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1989 in Porsche 962 alongside Jean Alesi and Will Hoy and at Daytona and Sebring, where his best finish was a 2nd place in 1990, co-driving with Sarel van der Merwe and Klaus Ludwig. As to Bayside Racing, the Richmond-based team raced one more CART season, 1991, with Jeff Andretti on a full schedule, before Leven disbanded the racing team and turned his attention back to business.
