While most people have their eyes on Fernando Alonso during this year’s Indy 500, all thoughts were with Scott Dixon and Jay Howard after this horrific crash a quarter of the way into the race.

Howard was a lap down when he hit the wall and speared into Dixon’s path to cause the mother of all shunts.

Both drivers managed to walk away, while the race was red flagged. Fernando Alonso was leading the race.

An onboard from Helio Castroneves’ car also shows how shockingly close he came to being involved in the crash.
