After three years in 1997-1999 with first generation Indycar chassis (IR-7, IR-8 and IR-9), Dallara introduced a new second generation model chassis for the 2000 season, named the IR-00. Panther Racing, sponsored by Pennzoil, switched for 200 to new Dallara chassis instead of G-Force, which was used two previous seasons. The team began to use an all-yellow Pennzoil livery after using the Sam Bass-designed black and yellow livery the previous two seasons. Scott Goodyear, the single entry of the team, drove the car #4 and scored two second-place finishes (in MCI WorldCom Indy 200 at Phoenix and in Belterra Resort Indy 300 at Kentucky Speedway) and won the final round of the season, Excite 500 at Texas Motor Speedway. Canadian driver finished second in the championship behind only Buddy Lazier. It was his last full season in IRL. Goodyear went into semi-retirement in 2001, starting only in Indy 500.
