Newgarden Has Been Cleared To Resume Driving Duties
(SPEEDWAY, Ind.) May 14, 2015 – Josef Newgarden has been checked, cleared and released from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Medical Center following an accident during practice for the Indianapolis 500. The rear end of the car came around entering Turn 1, making contact with the SAFER barrier. The car became airborne and Newgarden landed upside down, but was able to climb from the car. He is cleared to resume driving.
JOSEF NEWGARDEN, NO. 21 CENTURY 21 CHEVROLET: “It’s still early for me, I am still trying to gather my thoughts from it. I got around pretty quick in Turn 1, it definitely surprised me. I am just lucky that everything is good, the Dallara tub held up pretty well. I want to get back with my crew and see what the damage is and see what we can do going forward.”
