Rahal, Servia clog up track in IndyCar pileup

What had been a relatively clean IndyCar race on Sunday turned on its head on Lap 57 when a multi-car incident occurred shortly after a restart.

With passes breaking out in front of him, Graham Rahal (with the onboard above) found himself run over by Carlos Munoz entering Turn 4. Rahal then got turned 180 degrees and was then hit by Will Power’s replacement driver Oriol Servia, which essentially clogged up the racetrack.

The incident took place shortly after a restart at the season-opening IndyCar race on the Streets of St. Petersburg in Florida.

Carlos Munoz was given a penalty for avoidable contact shortly afterward.
