Gamesmanship? Carelessness? Take your pick for whatever it was, but what happened in the pits during Sunday’s IndyCar event at Sonoma Raceway meant Will Power won and Scott Dixon lost.

The down and dirty: Dixon nailed one of Power’s pit crew members as he exited, sending him flying and knocking down another crew member — not to mix sports, but it looked a lot like picking up a two-pin split in bowling. Dixon, then in first place, was penalized, costing him the race.

NBC’s commentators were clearly on Dixon’s side. One said of the crew member, walking away from Power’s car with a tire hanging at his side: “He’s just walking as if he’s carrying groceries home from the store.”

If so, it looks like the eggs got broken.

Dixon obviously had no doubt about what he thought happened. He said Power’s crew was trying to make him go around them on his way out of the pits, calling it a “d*ck move.”
