FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - IndyCar will not use double-file restarts the rest of the season.

The decision to modify the restarts comes on the eve of Saturday night's race at Texas Motor Speedway, the first race double-file restarts were scheduled to be used this season.

IndyCar had planned to use double-file restarts at all oval tracks except Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The series uses single-file restarts on road and street courses.

IndyCar president of competition and operations Derrick Walker says dropping double-file restarts eliminates a potential advantage to the drivers in the desirable lane during the re-start.

Walker says IndyCar also will place drivers in the same running order they were prior to the caution.
