Andretti team scrambling after Kanaan crash
INDIANAPOLIS — Michael Andretti’s team is scrambling to get Tony Kanaan back on the Indianapolis track after he crashed for the second time in less than 24 hours.
Team spokesman Al Larsen told The Associated Press the team is taking part of Kanaan’s backup car, the one he drove in Sunday’s 1-hour practice session, and will piece it together with parts from Kanaan’s primary car and the qualified car of Ryan Hunter-Reay.
Kanaan was practicing Sunday morning when he spun coming out of the first turn. The rear end of the car hit the outside wall, sending Kanaan skidding through the short chute between the first and second turns before he spun again and hit the wall again.
Kanaan has been cleared to drive at the infield medical center.
