IndyCar: 2008 Indy Challenge video

It was a return to Victory Lane for Tony Kanaan at Richmond International Raceway, for the first time in 2008. The 2004 IndyCar champion resisted in the lead following 9 yellow flag periods which made up for a third of the race under caution. That inevitably shuffled the pack, and Helio Castroneves made the most of it, earning the runner-up spot after starting 18th. Scott Dixon beat team mate Dan Wheldon for third, with Marco Andretti losing a lap in the latter stages having challenged Kanaan for the win earlier on.

Dario Franchitti’s problems allowed Scott Dixon to score his third win of the season. The briton had been leading comfortably from pole position in the first half of the race, only to be delayed by a yellow flag just as he was entering the pits. As he was low on fuel, he had to stop for a splash of ethanol before pitting once again for more fuel and tyres. His team mate, then, had an untroubled run to the checkered flag.
