This Is the Save of the Century

IndyCar driver Zach Veach probably gave thanks to on high after this incredible save in last night’s race at Texas Motor Speedway. On lap 134, Veach received a bit of inopportune aero wash on the exit of the corner at wide open throttle. Popping the car into the wall on the back stretch is a quick and easy way to break some suspension bits, and that sent Veach into a very fast spin. With quick hands and a whole lot of luck, he managed to avoid a huge accident.

Veach’s team ultimately got the car repaired and returned to the race, running for another 38 laps before ultimately retiring the car. It was a valiant effort, but all for naught.

And not to be one-upped, Alex Rossi did this MF’n thing.

A near miss for the ages, Alex Rossi went low and missed a spinning Colton Herta. This saw Rossi move up into second, where he finished behind eventual winner Josef Newgarden.
