07/13/13 INDYCAR officials announced a standing start will be used in the IZOD IndyCar Series’ Honda Indy Toronto 2 in T.O. Race #2 on Sunday, July 14.

“The fans deserve to see a standing start, so after consultation with the promoter, we have made the decision to implement a standing start for Sunday’s race,” said Brian Barnhart, senior vice president of operations, INDYCAR.

The series’ first attempt at a standing start was aborted during Race #1 Saturday due to a stalled car on the grid.

The standing start will follow the same procedures that were used in Race #1.
