A horrific crash that sent Scott Dixon's car airborne knocked the New Zealand driver out of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday.
The two-car crash happened in Turn1 and sent Dixon's car flying over the car of Jay Howard. It landed on top of a safety fence where it then split in two.
Luckily, the tub of the car remained intact and Dixon was able to climb out on his own.
Dixon, a four-time IndyCar champion who won the race in 2008, was able to walk to a nearby ambulance. Both he and Howard were examined after the crash and came away without any major injuries.
"Just a little beaten up there. It was definitely a rough ride," Dixon said. "I'm just bummed for the team, man. We had a great shot. We had gotten a little loose but they had dialed it in."
Earlier this week Dixon and Dario Franchitti were robbed at gunpoint while waiting in a drive-thru line at a Taco Bell not far from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
