I would say that his chances of racing this year have just flown out the window. :(

That was one serious accident and impact with the wall. A testament to all the safety advances made over the years. That wreck could have been so much worse if the “soft wall” hadn’t been there. Like Paul posted, I fear his chances of racing this year may be over. Such a shame . . . he was having an awesome start to the year. What he and Dale Coyne have done with such a small team and budge is remarkable. My thoughts certainly go out to him and his team.

That was a very abrupt shunt, the force must have been incredible.

I’ve never heard the Speedway so silent as it was immediately afterwards.
