INDIANAPOLIS - The IndyCar Series has removed Brian Barnhart as head of race control after a controversial season in which drivers publicly
questioned his decisions.
IndyCar CEO Randy Bernard said Wednesday that Barnhart will remain president of operations. Bernard's currently searching for a new race director.
Bernard also says Terry Angstadt has resigned as president of IndyCar's commercial division. He will be replaced by Marc Koretzky, who has been with the open-wheel series since May as director of corporate business development.
Barnhart struggled this season to maintain the respect of the drivers after a handful of arbitrary decisions. He returned to racing at New Hampshire when drivers said it was raining too hard to resume the event - and they were proven right with a wreck on the restart.
