Alexander Rossi Nearly Runs Over Helio Castroneves' Head

A bizarre and terrifying crash busted out at the IndyCar race at Pocono today, as this year’s Indy 500 winner Alexander Rossi nearly drove over triple Indy 500 winner Helio Castroneves’ head. Everyone made it out unscathed...just.

Watch the crash here, as Rossi pulls out of his pit stall and into Charlie Kimball on the left of the screen. Rossi then careens over the top of Castroneves’ car. A later photo showed scratches possibly on Castroneves’ helmet, showing just how close Rossi’s car came to taking his top off.


Canopies, man. Anytime would be a good time.
