The first ever Grand Prix of Indianapolis got off to a terrible start Saturday. Sebastian Saavedra, who was sitting on the pole for the first time in his career, stalled just as the race began. Some of the cars behind Saavedra were able to avoid his stationary car, but Mikhail Aleshin wasn’t so lucky.


Aleshin smashed into Saavedra and Carlos Munoz had nowhere to go but into the back of the pole-sitter. All three cars were knocked out of the race before they even crossed the start/finish line.
