Rookie IndyCar driver Callum Ilott has crashed during the 2022 Indianapolis 500. He was involved in an incident on Turn 2 of Lap 68 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Speedway, Indiana.
He struck the wall. This eliminated the England native from competing in the rest of the event.
This crash involving Ilott put then-front runner Alex Palou in a tough position. Palou was running out of gas and was forced to pit.

However, he pitted when the pit road was closed. Palou had to come back into the pits during full service as he was penalized.
This hurt his track position.
This was Illot’s sixth race of the season. Two of the six races have seen him crash.
The Juncos Hollinger Racing driver also was involved in an accident in April. He crashed on Lap 55 during the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach on the Long Beach Street Circuit in Long Beach, California.

During an interview, he said that he suffered a wrist injury.
While Ilott may be disappointed that he did not have a good showing at the biggest IndyCar race of the season, he does not have to wait long to get back into the car. IndyCar will be back next weekend at Belle Isle near Detroit, Michigan.
