30,000 fans got to see an afternoon of intense racing on Sunday at Detroit’s Belle Isle, but unfortunately, it only lasted for 40 of the 90-lap race as significant sections of the 2.1-mile street circuit began to break up.
Long strips of the black sealant used to fill seams began to lift, if not fold up into dangerously tall chunks in many corners which led to a violent crash by Andretti Autosport’s James Hinchcliffe on Lap 39.
The Canadian climbed from his car unhurt, but walked back to inspect the football-sized clump of sealant that launched his car hard into the barriers.
“I hate to say it, but I don’t know what they’re going to do,” said Hinchcliffe. “The lap before the accident a big chunk hit my wing in Turn 9. I was going to turn in, a piece of [track] folded over and you’re just a passenger at that point.”
With the yellow flag shown on Lap 40, the field circulated until Lap 45 when the red flag was thrown.
