That was scary! And the sound and violence of it in real-time... wow.

I'm glad Dario made it out of there! Two fractured vertebrae, fractured ankle and a concussion. Sadly some fans and an Indycar timing & scoring official were also injured. All involved get well soon.

I thought the ugly rear "fenders" were meant to minimize if not eliminate such launches?? Maybe not. Thank God the injuries are not too serious, to driver and spectators.

The rear "fenders" can't stop anything above 10 mph!

So the car behind front tires are going to hit the rear tires of the front car at racing speed.

It was more a PR "comfort thing to the fans" after that bad crash at Vegas!

Considering the violence of that crash I'd say he did pretty good on the injury front.
