Miami: IRL rise and shine

Scott Dixon took the checkered flag in the first race of the newly merged/integrated Indy Racing League Champ Car World Series. Highlights? The battle for third spot, late in the race between Scott Dixon and Tony Kanaan — 209 mph, 3 inches apart. Shows once again that both drivers are a factor in any race they’re in, no mater how far back they are. Lowlights? (other than the fact my household lights were off for an hour to mark Earth Hour, delaying my race viewing until after 9 p.m.) The lack of a substantial Champ Car field; the excessively long cleanup after some relatively minor incidents.
