He said I did nothing wrong, so I take that as I did nothing wrong.Cavin: New IndyCar rule makes series look silly“After Detroit, Dario was the first person to tell me I was driving like an idiot. He’ll tell me if I’m doing something wrong, and he won’t be scared to do it. There’s only been a few times when I’ve pleased him, and Iowa was one of them.”Franchitti has not publicly commented on the Iowa incident, and Karam did not receive a penalty, much less a warning, for his driving.However, Karam said race officials told him after the race that he was “cutting it a little close” given the five-race probation period he was placed under after avoidable contact with Jack Hawksworth in Detroit. Iowa was the fifth race in that sanction.Follow Curt Cavin on Facebook and Twitter: @curtcavinMiles on new IndyCar rule: ‘This is not a gag order’last_img read more
