Scott Dixon expects to be fined for calling for IndyCar race director Beaux Barfield's firing

Scott Dixon says he expects to be fined by IndyCar for calling for race director Beaux Barfield to be fired.

Dixon told The Associated Press on Wednesday he was frustrated following two consecutive races of inconsistency from IndyCar race control. He said he was upset Sunday in Baltimore when officials ignored a Chip Ganassi Racing request to tow his car back to pit lane so his team could attempt to repair it following an accident with Will Power with 22 laps remaining.

Dixon finished 19th and lost more ground to Helio Castroneves in the championship race. Dixon is 49 points behind Castroneves with three races remaining.

Dixon said he regrets the comments he made, and wished incidents the last two weeks had not detracted from the racing.
