Complete with interviews and rants from an owner and a driver. In "What the hell were they thinking?" department officials decided to restart the race with five laps left to go on a wet track. It resulted a big crash before reaching the start/finish line when Danica Patrick spun on the wet track as she accelerated. It caused a chain reaction involving her, Will Power, Takuma Sato, Ed Carpenter, and Ana Beatriz. The race immediately red flagged then declared officially over 10 minutes later. Between those 10 minutes is pure entertainment. Will Power seething anger giving double middle fingers. He and Michael Andretti ranted over Brian Barnhart clueless officiating. Along with it is Takuma Sato interview who surprisingly blamed himself for Dario Franchitti accident. Brian Barnhart talked on camera giving his side of the story of the mistake. Ryan Hunter-Reay took the victory.
