231.595 AND THEN 'WHAM'

Sebastian Bourdais had just pulled the fastest qualifying lap for the Indy 500 when he lost control and plunged into the wall. As you probably know he is on my list of favorite drivers because I know he is a very good driver, but hasn't had much luck lately. Although he started off this year with a bang and then dropping into the 'no luck' mode. In the past under CART/Champ series which came before the latest Indy Car series he was the series champ four times.

He apparently has several fractures of the pelvis and has undergone surgery I hope that at 38 years of age this is not a career ending accident.

Highest qualifier of the day, Ed Carpenter, another personal favorite.
