INDIANAPOLIS — The first lap of the 2016 Grand Prix of Indianapolis wasn’t complete before the race’s first wreck took place.  Tony Kanaan and Sebastien Bourdais made contact with each other as they were about to enter Turn 1.  Bourdais continued in the race, but Kanaan was knocked out.

“I tried to avoid Dixon and Bourdais was on my side.  Very unfortunate.  I hate to end up out of the race on the first lap, but it is what it is,” said Kanaan.

With his day done early, the 2013 winner of the Indy 500 turns his attention to the Greatest Spectacle in Racing.

“It’s not the first time that it happened, it won’t be the last time. So just get ready for the month now,” Kanaan said.
