AL.com reports that IndyCar's president of race operations, Brian Barnhart, is considering changing the the acceleration point for restarts for this weekend's Honda Grand Prix of Alabama at Barber Motorsports Park. It reports Barnhart spoke with several drivers on Thursday at Barber and will decide today whether to keep the acceleration point where it was last year – at the start of the straightaway coming out of the final turn – or move it closer, like it was at St. Petersburg.
"I think we need to adjust," said Helio Castroneves, who sees great potential for cars in the back plowing into cars in the front on restarts. "The front row, row 2, row 3. That's where the action should be, not farther back."
