"The chassis of the 77 impacted a vertical post along the right side of the tub that created a deep defect in the tub that extended from the pedal bulk head, along the upper border of the tub and through the cockpit," IndyCar President of Operations Brian Barnhart said.

"The ability of the drivers to race from the bottom of the racetrack all the way up to the wall and run limitless is not a condition we've experienced before," added Barnhart. Indy 215 (2011) [cached]

INDYCAR president of competition and racing operations Brian Barnhart, the Race Director for the IZOD IndyCar Series, said it ultimately was a "mistake on Race Control's part" to call for the restart.

"The only right thing to do and the fair thing to do is to go to the running order before the restart," he said.

"The penalty guidelines were developed after numerous meetings during the offseason with drivers, team owners and other team principals," said Brian Barnhart, INDYCAR vice president of competition, race control. "All of the stakeholders involved wanted more teeth in the regulations when it came to more serious violations of safety or competition rules.

"The result is that the stewards now have a more clearly defined set of rulings they can make," Barnhart continued. "That includes immediate penalties for some transgressions that in the past would have been warnings on the first offense."
Among the infractions that now incur an immediate penalty rather than a warning are: jumping a race start or restart, lagging back on a restart, blocking and avoidable contact.
"The drivers in particular wanted more strict penalties for these types of infractions," Barnhart said. "They believe, and INDYCAR agrees, that these updated penalty guidelines will create cleaner, more exciting racing that is easier to officiate and easier for fans to understand and enjoy."
Any of the three stewards or Barnhart, the race director, can call for a stewards' review if one believes a competition infraction has occurred.

IndyCar’s Winter of Discontent: Where Does the Series Go from Here? - The Vintage Racing League [cached]

Arguably, NASCAR's February-to-November juggernaut of a schedule is exhausting, but there's a lot of time on the calendar to build momentum in terms of public interest. (And to lose momentum, and to build momentum again.) Yet as IndyCar tries to do the same leading into its 2015 season, two strange things have happened, the first being that the series announced on January 28 that Brian Barnhart, the IndyCar race director from 1997-2011, would serve as race director for 2015.

This is remarkable because several drivers and Barnhart did not, shall we say, see eye-to-eye during his last tenure as race director. In 2011, Helio Castroneves said this: "It's impossible to accept the decisions of a race director who is inconsistent, who issues different punishments to identical situations, and who is condescending with some and harsh with others. That same season, an animated Will Power flipped off, with both middle fingers, race director Barnhart on live TV, after the latter had drivers restart a race at New Hampshire in the rain that resulted in unfortunate events.

Whether Barnhart is the best man for the job is, frankly, irrelevant. But when his re-appointment results in such visceral reaction from fans who care enough to go to, one wonders if there wasn't someone out there who could do this job and not rile so many people.
