IndyCar’s feeder series, Indy Lights, is usually home to some pretty damn good racing. Drivers who win the Lights championship are guaranteed a few races with an actual IndyCar team the next year—including the 500—so the competition is usually really tight and something to behold.

If there’s one good thing about Indianapolis Motor Speedway hosting one leg of the Triple Crown of Motorsport, it’s that the big oval it usually produces some good, close racing. That’s exactly what happened in Indy Lights this morning: a crazy photo finish where the winner was decided by only .0024 seconds.
Max Chilton dedicated his first pole position in Indy Lights today to his only teammate in Formula One: Jules Bianchi. Bianchi passed away last night after sustaining severe head injuries at the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix.
Nelson Piquet Jr. made his Indy Lights debut in Toronto on pole, but a horrifying crash with another driver dashed his hopes for a win. The good news is that he and the driver he collided with, RC Enerson, were both uninjured. That’s kind of a miracle when you see what happened to Enerson’s car.
It’s the unofficial motto of car enthusiasts everywhere.

In today's installment of 'holy crap I watched someone almost get his face caved in,' an IndyLights driver narrowly misses a loose wheel shooting inches from his helmet.
