Spin Leads To Terrifying Airborne Somersault Crash In Indy 500 Practice

Helio Castroneves has won the Indy 500 three times. He’s blessed at the speedway. But today the speedway bit back. Thankfully, Helio is ok.

Castroneves got loose on track and backed the car into the wall in the short chute between turn one and turn two. That got some lift, and then air got in the car and sent it flipping. It landed on the roll bar and Helio got out under his own power.


Scary moment.
