Takuma Sato is the first driver to go out of the race, after he put his Mona-Vie car into the wall into turn #2. This happened right after Paul Tracy whitewalled his tires, but managed to get his car into his pits. A race official told him to shut the car off, but he's still in the race.
Right now, Alex Tagliani is running first with 22 laps complete, followed by Dixon, Bell, Wheldon, Franchitti, and Servia.
Favorites update: Bertrand Baguette is running 9th, Justin Wilson is 23rd, and Simona de Silvestro is 23rd, 1 lap behind the now out Sato.
