Last year, Ed Jones had a good race result, as he finished in the Top 10 of the 101st Indianapolis 500. However, one year later, Jones will not complete the race.
Just three laps after caution from the first crash, involving Takuma Sato and James Davison, something broke on Jones’ car. He crashed into the Turn 2 wall on Lap 58, causing the second caution of the race.
His car got loose. Then in the middle of the turn, it was already gone, as he crashed into the wall.
Jones, who is from the United Arab Emirates, had his second crash of the season in his NTT Data car for Chip Ganassi Racing. He also crashed in the second race of the season at Phoenix and finished 20th in the race.
This race, though, he was the third driver to be involved in a crash. The 31st position finish was his worst finish of the season, as he was coming off back-to-back races where he finished 20th and 22nd, respectively.
This was the first-time all season that he finished a race in the 30th position or later.
The 23-year-old, who has one podium appearance this season, had his lone podium finish last year at the Indianapolis 500. As a rookie, he finished third driving the FXTM/Boy Scouts of America for Dale Coyne Racing, as Sato was the winner and Hélio Castroneves finished second.
