IndyCar racing officials have decided to eliminate double-file restarts this season at three major ovals: Indianapolis, Texas and Fontana. Race director Beaux Barfield said the decision was made for two reasons: the location of the acceleration point at those particular tracks and drivers’ concerns.
Double-file restarts will continue at IndyCar’s other 12 races. Don’t expect this trend to continue to catch fire. h/t AP
