Champ Car race in Portland

I think this may be interesting. They may start the race today by using a standing start method, if it is not raining versus a rolling start in single-file behind the pace car method. Many of the drivers do not like the standing start method, pointing out, what will happen if car(s) stalls doing the start. One driver quoted a figure of 1 in 4 possibility of a car stalling.
