In a rather ridiculous restart orchestrated 7 laps from home, race director Brian Barnhart basically asked for trouble, given the moist track surface at New Hampshire Speedway. Danica Patrick lost it under accelaration, Takuma Sato and Will Power got involved. Thankfully no-one got hurt.
Earlier on Tomas Scheckter and Tony Kanaan had crashed out after contact and Dario Franchitti had been taken out by a spinning Taku Sato. However, these incidents had nothing to do with the tricky conditions of the final restart. Finally the race was cut those remaining five laps and Ryan Hunter-Reay was declared the winner
