Um, "Failure to start." I can kind of understand that in most Indianapolis 500 races cars suffer gearbox failures that put them out of the race. The RPM involved are much higher than for a street car. But many times I have seen cars towed away from the start line due to not starting. What is the explanation for this? How much does an Indy car cost? My vehicle has a Bluebook value of $800, and it fails to start once every four years when the battery fails. Even then, I can get it started by pushing it.
