Illustration for article titled Indy 500: And Theyre Off... To A Yellow

The green flag dropped on the 93th running of the Indianapolis 500 and almost right away two cars went into the wall. Mario Moraes and Marco Andretti tangled in the first lap. The 22-year-old Moraes was apparently on his cell phone and not paying attention, pushing Andretti into the wall.

Marco Andretti didn't pull any punches in a track-side interview saying "The kid just doesn't get it," expressing obvious anger at being out of the race only moments after it began. Moraes of course didn't see it that way, saying "He hit me" and immediately following his release from medical announced he was directly on his way to confront Andretti about the crash... cat fight! We'll be watching this one.


We're back to green now with Franchchitti leading Castroneves and Ryan Briscoe in third. We'll be breaking in with quick posts whenever something monumental happens (crashes) but until then we'll be going deaf here in Indy.
