Hit the wall fast enough and you'll flip, when Mario wrecked those cars didn't have a ton of front downforce and it didn't take much.

Heeelio and Newgarden were running some extra special Chevy areo shit.

It's now been banned.

Yesterday morning Chevy engineers convinced ICS that the suspect aero package is innocent, but I didn't see anyone run it in photos yesterday.

Pagenaud set Fast Friday best without it.

They had a qualifying aero package and a race aero package. After the 3rd flying crash, IndyCar changed the rules in the morning before qualifying and stated the same aero configuration used in qualifying had to be used in the race. Good times...

Bottom line....Carpenter got into the fence in an (albeit small) ball of fire. And for all the pissing and moaning in the media what was the worst thing ICS did? Take away artificial boost and areo bits that (mostly re bits) were not going to be used on race day anyway. BFD. Though I will agree Honda should have been left to try what they successfully tested, and that stupid last row shoutout was....well....stupid.

Unfortunately, these aren't the only cars that have been flying this week....


USAC .25 midget (different group than what we race) at Huntsville, Alabama....there's video of him getting launched....the official in the picture was injured when the car came down on him but he is expected to recover and be fine; the driver was not harmed and the car was repaired and returned to the track to race later that day.....by the way, the official should NOT be standing where he is and had no valid reason to be there - unless their rules are completely different than QMA....

just saying'....

Wicked wreck. Something broke entering turn three and the car veered for the wall. BBC says he had surgery on his "thigh". Sounds like he's out.

Yikes...Hinch almost bled out. http://blackflag.jalopnik.com/report-hinchcliffe-had-suspension-piece-go-through-leg-1705505193

Say what you want about the series...they are far above any series in accident safety and the traveling medical team.
