Actually, when they showed the proper replay on ABC I just assumed Dixon was the reason the start was aborted so the penalty was warranted. Of course Hull said the start was too slow that time.... and I'm not sure what the official reason was for the start being waved off. So maybe Dixon has a point. Barfield has now made it a point for him.
This race was controversial, too. Scott Dixon got slapped with a penalty for jumping the aborted restart on Lap 103. Car owner Chip Ganassi was hopping mad, dropping a choice word about the officiating.
"That was a call on a restart that never happened," he said.
First-year race director Beaux Barfield later admitted his mistake. He said a computer glitch caused him to review the wrong restart.
"We thought we were looking at the correct (replay)," he said. "If we would have played it four or five seconds more, we would have realized (the field) got to the start/finish line and got the yellow flag. That was my mistake."
Dixon finished 11th, a place Barfield said he couldn't correct once the drive-through penalty was served.
