Indy Racing needs to Look at Restarts

Robert PritchettContributor IJune 23, 2008

Watching the Indy Car Race in Iowa was exciting but I was disappointed in how Indy Racing handles restarts. Toward the end of the race Patrick was in fifth when a yellow was thrown.  She had Dixon and Andretti behind her and when the green flag was throw they both passed her before they reached the start finish line. This didn't happen once but twice with possible crashes occuring in both cases.  She was in the middle with Dixon going high and Andretti going low.  Indy Racing needs to adopt the NASCAR rule if you are going to pass before the start finish line on a restart you must pass to the outside
