First Speedway SNAFU

The dubious honor of being the first to make contact with the SAFER-barriers during the month of May goes to.... Drum roll please... Jaime Camara. He had posted a best lap of 218.264 this afternoon, before making contact with the turn-one wall. The track was red-flagged for SAFER-barriers repairs. Camara is being transported to Methodist Hospital complaining of back pain. He exited his car under his own power.

Certainly an inauspicious start to the month for Camara, who took the reins of the Conquest Racing mount from Franck Perera starting in Kansas.


According to the IndyStar, Camara's X-rays were negative. He will be evaluated tomorrow morning to determine if he will be cleared to drive.
