Considering that last year this race did not have on single caution flag this looked like a destruction derby. Under a caution flag finish the winner was Ryan Hunter-Reay. Josef Newgarden came second with Juan Pablo Montoya following in third.

It has been quite a while since I have seen a race with so many accidents. By race-end over half of the field was out of commission, 14 cars. Almost all of them due to accidents.


In the very worst accident, Justin Wilson driving for the Andretti Team, was struck in the head by a nose-piece flying through the air from a wall hit by Sage Karam. He is in very critical condition and in a coma as of this writing. I wish him a speedy recovery.

As for others that I like to keep track of they ended the race like this:

Takuma Sato - 6th
Ryan Brisco - 8th
Ed Carpenter - 17th - accident
Tony Kanaan - 19th - accident
Sebastian Bourdias - 23rd - accident
