IndyCar driver Scott Dixon almost runs over three pit crew members (Video)

Yesterday afternoon, Indycar driver’s Scott Dixon and Will Power were battling for the win at Sonoma Raceway.

Late in the race, the two (who had pit stalls right next to each other) both made a pit stop with Dixon just beating Powers out of his box. In the process, it appeared that Dixon nearly ran over three of Power’s crew members, sending them all crashing to the ground. It was a scary scene that was just inches away from possible tragedy.

However, upon closer inspection, one of Power’s pit crew members was holding a tire outwardly towards Dixon’s pit stall and walking extremely nonchalantly, a bit rare for somebody who’s job revolves around milliseconds.

The ‘crash’ cost Dixon who lost the race to Power, which didn’t sit well with him as after the race he accused Power and his crew of blatantly sabotaging the race:

“That’s probably the most blatant thing I’ve seen in a long time,” Dixon said. “You watch most pit guys, they try to get out of the way of other people, so that was a bit of a (classless) move, to be honest. … If that’s the way they want to try and win, that’s pretty bad.”
