Kanaan considering options for next season
“I think NASCAR has a lot of problems right now, a lot bigger than Tony Kanaan, I can tell you that,” he said.
Whatever issues there are in NASCAR, there’s plenty in IndyCar, too.
The past two races _ at Sonoma and Baltimore _ has seen friction between race control and drivers and Scott Dixon was fined $30,000 by IndyCar for saying race director Beaux Barfield should be fired.
It’s a pivotal moment for Dixon who sits 49 points behind Helio Castroneves for the series lead.
“It’s not my job to fix the issues, but the issues need to be fixed,” Franchitti said. “It’s been happening all year. It’s something that needs to be addressed. It’s a shame we’re talking about it. We should be talking about the excellent racing.”
Dixon hit one of Will Power’s crew members at Sonoma. At Baltimore, Dixon crashed and called for Barfield’s firing after not getting a requested tow back to the pits.
“And how haven’t they been consistent?” Power asked on Tuesday. “I think they have reviewed all of the decisions they’ve made and there really hasn’t been any inconsistencies, so I think race control is doing the right job.”
But not everyone wants to weigh in on the subject.
“Man, I’m smarter than that,” Marco Andretti said. “I’m not touching that one.”
