As predicted on Motorsports Unplugged Radio this morning, Ganassi would be hard to beat but as a team, Andretti Autosport, if they hook-up could control the race.
LAP 20 of 228 - Top 10 - TAGS, Dixon, Rahal, Power, Andretti, RHR, Hinchtown, Kanaan, Briscoe, and Pagenaud.
Trouble with Tagliani and he drops to P4 at around 207mph - Dixon assumes the lead
LAP 31 YELLOW Flag - Charlie Kimball smacks the wall in a single car incident - racing hard with EJ Viso
This helps Franchitti get back on the lead lap after unplanned pitstop for adjustments put him one lap down
