Yahoo Sports: Scott Dixon walks away after car catapults through air and lands on wall in Indy 500

Indianapolis 500 polesitter Scott Dixon walked away from an absolutely terrifying crash in Sunday’s race after his car catapulted over the crashed car of Jay Howard’s and landed on top of the inside wall.

“I little beaten up there, it was definitely a bit of a rough ride,” Dixon said in his post-care center interview, making the biggest understatement of the year.

“I think when you make those decisions which way to go you’re hoping — I was hoping Jay was going to stay against the wall. But obviously with the impact he started to turn down. But I had already picked that way to go and there was nowhere else to try to avoid him.”

Obviously no milk for Dixon at Indy this year.

    Shame for Dixon, as he was in great shape for a run at the glass of milk.

    Very professional how he handled it all

    A true champion for NZ

    Glad he walked away – that was scary how his car went airborne & came down on the concrete barrier. If it had hit in the cockpit area, he might not have.
