    Finding that middle ground is particularly vital in IndyCar, where cars occasionally go airborne in accidents. Many drivers at Saturday's 500-mile race at Auto Club Speedway believe IndyCar officials crossed the line by putting too much downforce on the cars, adding speed and risk at the 2-mile oval.
