Saturday at the races: Honda Indy Toronto 2013

The excitement of the @HondaIndy #Toronto continues during the double header race weekend with some drama as Dario Franchitti first lost and then reclaimed his third place podium finish due to a penalty, which was rescinded, and second place winner Sebastien Bourdais dropped his fancy Waterford crystal trophy which shattered into a number of pieces. The proposed standing start for Race #1 was aborted  when a stalled vehicle made the start unsafe and Scott Dixon won the IndyCar race #1, held on Saturday, July 13, 2013, meanwhile excited fans got a taste of the amazing Stadium Speed Trucks and their sky high jumps off of temporary ramps placed on the track.

UPDATE: See photos from ThursdayFridaySunday and the pretty Grid Girls of the 2013 Honda Indy Toronto.
