Dario Franchitti will remain in Houston for the next few days as he recovers from a frightening crash at the last lap of the Houston grand prix over the weekend.
Three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Dario Franchitti fractured two vertebrae and broke his right ankle when his car went airborne into a fence Sunday on the last lap of the Grand Prix of Houston.
Indianapolis 500 champion Dario Franchitti says he’s still “not very comfortable” racing on a high-banked oval, like that coming with at the Texas Motor Speedway on June 9.
Several IndyCar drivers dismissed any notion of boycotting the Texas Motor Speedway, and said the entire issue has been blown out of proportion.
Dario Franchitti should have been able to really celebrate winning for the first time in Texas. Instead, he lost ground in IndyCar Series points by losing a lottery that could wind up costing him another championship.
Dario Franchitti held off teammate Scott Dixon in a 10-lap shootout Saturday night to win the first of two races at Texas in the first doubleheader in major open-wheel racing in 30 years.
