Graham Rahal came into the IndyCar race at Pocnono second place in the series championship. Unfortunately, he won’t be finishing the ABC Supply 500 at Pocono due to a crash with Tristan Vautier. There’s only one race left, and tensions are clearly high during this second to last round of the 2015 IndyCar season.

Guy Martin had a massive shunt at the Ulster Dundrod 150 Superbike race, hurdling him into the barriers after sliding out in a corner resulting in a broken vertebra, ribs, and sternum. But no biggie. He’ll be back to work tomorrow.
Kenny Habul’s flaming car caused a red flag towards the end of today’s NASCAR Xfinity Zippo 200. Driving into the pit lane after that kind of hit (at a race sponsored by lighters, no less) around all the fuel and such proves that your car is tough, sure, but doesn’t seem like the best idea.

It’s not been a great morning for famous British marques at the British Grand Prix. Both McLarens and both Lotuses whacked into each other right on the first lap of the race. Oops!
A “big one” during practice for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Coke Zero 400 collected a ton of cars, including the one driven by Carl Edwards. So, what does he do? He hops in and starts helping his crew wrench on the car, duh.
Maybe? We’re hoping it’s just an unfortunate coincidence for sponsor Combilift that Josh Moffett and John Rowan’s Ford Fiesta lifted into the air during stage 2 of the European Rally Championship’s Ypres Rally. »
