The race was halted 25 laps short of its scheduled distance because of darkness.
The race lasted 6 hours, 35 minutes, 51 seconds because of the rain and a spectacular accident involving Steve Park on the first lap. Park was not injured in the crash, which forced a delay of 1:05 while repairs were made to the infield retaining wall just beyond the first turn. Less than a half-hour later, rain caused another red flag, which halted the $3.7 million event for an additional 2:02 after the 27th of 175 laps.
