INDIANAPOLIS – Unfortunately, Chris Windom’s Indy Lights Series debut will have to wait a bit longer. Windom, was involved in a practice crash this morning at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and while fortunately he was uninjured, his No. 33 Mazda was not.
The team announced on Monday afternoon that due to the extensive damage on his Belardi Racing/Byrd Racing joint entry, that they won’t be able to have the car ready to race in Friday’s Freedom 100.
“It’s unfortunate but following the incident this morning involving Chris Windom, he will not be able to participate in the Freedom 100 due to the damage on his No. 33 car,” the Belardi Auto Racing account tweeted. “We hate to see if for Chris, but know he will bounce back.”
That’s unfortunate too. Windom, a talented driver in USAC and one that everyone was really looking forward to seeing make his debut this weekend will have to wait a bit longer. He was fifth overall in practice this morning, but the resources just aren’t there to get his car repaired in time.
