During the last round of pit stops during Sunday's GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma, Will Power and Scott Dixon entered the pits at the same time. After changing tires, Dixon took off as Travis Law, a crew member for Power's car, was carrying a tire away from the pit. Dixon's rear tire clipped Law's handheld tire as he strolled (yes, strolled) out of the pit area and sent it flying into Law and Law into another crew member. Both men fell to the ground in a scary-looking moment, but eventually got up under their own power. Eventually Power took the checkered flag. Later, Dixon claimed Law was taking one for the team by purposely standing in front of his car in order to slow him down. It's never a bright idea to go one-on-one with a half-ton IndyCar but, once again,  it looks like someone fought the Law and the Law won.
