Double-File Disasters Mar Franchitti’s St. Petersburg Win [VIDEO]

The double-file restart has been an unabashed success in NASCAR, creating stirring drama with the waving of each yellow caution flag. IndyCar, desperate to add life to its sport, debuted the restart at St. Petersburg and things did not go well. Marcos Andretti flipped over on the first turn of the first lap (above) and just about every driver in the field seemed to be complaining on the radio and to reporters about the impossibility of continuing the restart style in the future.

On track, Dario Franchitti sapped all drama from the event and won easily.
