Veach Was Collected In A Late Race Crash At Indy

Zach Veach

No. 26 GAINBRIDGE HONDA
  • STARTED 28th // FINISHED 29th
  • CHAMPIONSHIP: 20th (83 pts.)
  • OF NOTE: 
  • Zach Veach gained significant track position and ran as high as ninth before being collected in a multi-car incident on Lap 177
  • Was checked and released from the Infield Care Center but has not been cleared to drive pending further evaluation on his right knee
“I think that was the biggest hit I have ever had on an oval. My knee came up and hit the steering wheel where I backed in. I got my right knee pretty bad – I think it is okay. Luckily, they did x-rays but it is just really bruised. It is unfortunate, the Gainbridge car was so good. It was one of the best cars I have ever had. We went from 28th to 12th or 13th at that time. We were well on our way with the final pitstop to be an easy top 10 for us. I hated it for the team, they did an incredible job. I hate it for the people supporting me. I hate it for my friend, (Felix) Rosenqvist, too. We both started 28th and 29th then were running 11th and 12th when our races ended at the same time. It’s tough. Hopefully, we can come back and have a little more luck on our side next year.”

TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
