Watch This Incredible Indy 500 Crash That Will Immediately Go Viral

Roughly 50 laps into today’s Indianapolis 500, pole-sitter Scott Dixon had the rear end of his car ripped off and he was sent airborne in a terrifying looking crash that he amazingly walked away from.

Driver Jay Howard lost control of his car in Turn One and ended up sliding across the track, leading Dixon to slam into Howard’s car. Dixon’s vehicle then went into the air, flying over another car before and eventually ripping a hole in the infield fence. Howard also was able to walk away from the accident.

There was almost nothing left of Dixon’s car after the wreck and the red flag was waved while the fence was repaired and the wreckage cleared.
