Insane crash at Indy 500 takes out two cars

Horrifying! Racer Scott Dixon's Indy 500 auto crashed today at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and it completely obliterated his vehicle.

According to Fox News, the red flag was flown due to a hole made in the infield safety fencing from the crash.

Both Dixon, the 2008 victor, and and Howard were able to climb from their cars. He had started on pole position after qualifying fastest with an average four lap speed of 373.63kmh. Due to the crash, he will be the first polesitter to finish 30th or worse since Bruno Junqueira in 2002.

Howard blamed the incident on Ryan Hunter-Reay.

As Howard's vehicle deflected back onto the track he wiped out Dixon whose auto was catapulted into the air in a terrifying spin with flames bursting out underneath. "You just hold on and have faith in the safety advances that we've had over the years".

Howard said that forced him to the top of the track, and the British driver for Schmidt Peterson Motorsports wound up in the outside wall. "There's nowhere else to try to avoid them". It was just a wild ride, man.

Following a brush into the wall by Jay Howard, Dixon came around the corner and impacted the left side of Howard's off-the-pace No. 77.

Bourdais, who was at the track Sunday, joined Franchitti in visiting Dixon at the care center. "Definitely a wild ride for sure".
