Conor Daly caused the second caution period of the Indianapolis 500 after getting loose and crashing into the SAFER barrier as he ran alongside Charlie Kimball on lap 65.

The AJ Foyt Racing driver ran into the dirty area at turn three as he attacked Chip Ganassi Racing’s Kimball and after a twitch, was a passenger as he hit the wall, while Jack Harvey also found his rookie Indy 500 ended as he spun after hitting debris.

Daly was competing in his fourth Indianapolis 500, but has now retired from three of them, and he apologised to the team over the radio for hitting the wall.

Harvey was unfortunate to get caught up in the incident, with the debris spinning into the inside wall, with the crash ending both his and his Michael Shank Racing’s maiden attack at the legendary race.

Andretti Autosport currently hold the top four positions on the road, with Takuma Sato leading from Alexander Rossi, Ryan Hunter-Reay and Fernando Alonso.
