Watch below: Wow... just WOW!
Many people are saying 'I'm just glad everyone is alright.' I think the everyone is alright is a rush to the facts. In the early portion of the race, Robert Wickens (Canada) was involved in a crash with Ryan Hunter-Reay that engulfed the track and five cars total. The horrific airborne helicopter type crash brought out the red flag for almost two hours. IndyCar released a statement after the race saying the 29-year-old suffered "orthopedic injuries" but declined to go into detail. I don't think this is great news but I will not speculate.
Wickens’ car spun violently into the catch fence before crashing back down to the track. He was said to be 'awake and alert' when he was transported by helicopter to Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest in Allentown, Pennsylvania, for further evaluation. Reports say he is being evaluated for orthopedic issues. Indycar will update Wickens’ condition when it becomes available.
Alexander Rossi contiunes his run to the championship for his second straight Verizon Indycar win in Sunday’s ABC Supply 500 at Pocono Raceway to tighten the championship battle with three races remaining. Scott Dixon still holds a slim lead.
