A huge seven-car crash has marred the second IndyCar Series race of the weekend at Texas Motor Speedway; seven cars claimed by the accident.
The crash was triggered by Pietro Fittipaldi. The eager youngster drilled the rear of four-time champion Sebastien Bourdais off the start line, sending the Frenchman spinning across the still-gridded-up traffic.
The subsequent chaos claimed Alexander Rossi, Dalton Kellett, James Hinchcliffe, and Ed Jones. Conor Daly was almost able to sneak through the crash, only to get pincered at speed; sending his car into a roll.
Daly, and everyone else involved in the crash, thankfully emerged unscathed.
The clean-up took 18 laps to complete, with the race restarting with question marks over what the delay means for strategy.
Both Kiwis, Scott Dixon and Scott McLaughlin, avoided the crash since it took place behind him. With the race having since restarted, Dixon sits first and McLaughlin eighth.
