We have the first caption in the 102nd running of the Indianapolis 500. Takuma Sato crashes into James Davison.

The incident happened on lap 47. Both drivers will miss the rest of the race due to the damage of their cars.

Sato ran right into the slower Davidson, who had trouble since almost the beginning of the race. The Japanese driver had no place to go.

This was all on Davison, who attempted to keep a loose car on the track.

Sato, who became the first Japanese driver ever to win the Indianapolis 500 last year, had his worst finish of the season due to the crash. He finished in the 32nd position for the Mi-Jack/Panasonic driver for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing.

He was coming off of two Top 10 finishes before the crash with Davison. But this is the third time that he has crashed at the prestigious Indianapolis 500 in his career, as he also crashed in 2016 and in 2011.

The 41-year-old had his worst finish at this track in 2011 when he was the driver of With You Japan/Lotus/Mona Vie/Panasonic for KV Racing Technology. He finished in the 33rd position.

Davison, who has made only one IndyCar appearance from 2014-15 and 2017-18, finished in the last position, driving the Jonathan Byrd’s 502 East car for Foyt-Byrd-Hollinger-Belardi. One year ago, he was the 20th place finish after a year away.

The 31-year-old’s best career finish at the Indianapolis 500 was his 16th place finish in 2014 when he was driving for Always Evolving Racing/Humax for KV Racing Technology.
