Dario Franchitti went for what can only be described as a frightening
ride flight at Michigan International Speedway yesterday as Franchitti's car got touched hard in the rear by Dan Wheldon on lap 143 of the rain-delayed Firestone Indy 400. We're told Tony Kanaan won the race — but the highlight's got to be Franchitti flying through the air with the greatest of ease, and landing top side down atop Scott Dixon's car. Although we're pretty sure he probably didn't enjoy the inappropriate touching of his rear end too much, Franchitti's not blaming Wheldon. He's a better man than us — we'd be pretty pissed if we got rear-ended on the track.
