The 101st running of the Indy 500 was this past weekend on Sunday. If you didn’t know or were too busy with your Memorial Day Festivities we have you covered.
Formula 1 ace Fernando Alonso actually decided to not attend the Monaco Grand Prix and race his McLaren Honda around the Monte Carlo streets this year and instead took a ride offered from Andretti Motorsports in collaboration with Mclaren and Honda. Everything looked very promising for the Spaniard as he qualified 5th for the 500 and even lead 27 laps during Sunday. An engine failure ended the F1 drivers chances of taking a victory at the monumental race.
Scott Dixon on the other hand had a whirlwind of a week in Indy. Reports last week hit the internet that Dixon was held at gun point in a Taco Bell drive-through one late night prior to heading back to his hotel. If that wasn’t enough, Dixon was caught up in one of the worst accidents we have ever seen at Indy. With the 230+mph speeds these drivers are seeing on race day, you can bet to see some sort of incident.
During Sunday’s race Scott Dixon and Jay Howard collided after Howard had an issue coming off a turn and Dixon was right there and collided with Howard. The collision sent Dixon flying through the air and on landing hit a guard rail with a side impact the his carbon safety celled Indy Car.
