A pit lane error handed the Ganassi team a lucky one-two at Nashville. Scott Dixon and Dan Wheldon failed to make it into the pits during a late yellow flag period but when rain fell on the track it handed the pair a fortunate one-two.

Helio Castroneves took third ahead of Tony Kanaan and Danica Patrick – her best result since her win at Twin Ring Motegi.

The same five drivers are the top five in the championship and very nearly in the same order. Dixon has a 63 point lead with 420 to Castroneves’ 357. Wheldon is on 351, Kanaan 339 and Patrick 266.
