ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – They restarted on Lap 57 and they went back to yellow on Lap 57 at St. Petersburg.

In a nutshell, Carlos Munoz in the No. 26 Andretti Autosport Honda got into Graham Rahal in the No. 15 Steak ‘n Shake Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing Honda at Turn 4, and the contact prompted a traffic jam with six other cars involved.

Those others involved include Alexander Rossi, Charlie Kimball, Jack Hawksworth, James Hinchcliffe, Sebastien Bourdais and Oriol Servia. I also saw Luca Filippi and Marco Andretti involved.

Meanwhile, here’s what you really want to see: the video. INDYCAR tweeted it out, and it’s now on YouTube, above.

The race has restarted on Lap 64, with Juan Pablo Montoya taking the lead on Daly into Turn 1 after also getting Simon Pagenaud back just before the multi-car yellow.
