INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Australian driver James Davison crashed Friday during practice for the Indianapolis 500 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Davison made contact with the wall in Turn 2 about 2:30 p.m., said 24-Hour News 8’s Anthony Calhoun. Davison got out of the car on his own and appeared to be OK.
Davison and three other cars crashed in Turn 1 during the running of the 2017 Indianapolis 500. He was Sebastian Bourdais’ replacement in the 2017 race and finished 20th.
Davison, who lives in San Francisco, made his IndyCar Series debut in 2013 at Mid-Ohio and his Indianapolis 500 debut in 2014, according to an IndyCar biography. His grandfather, Lex Davison, won the Australian Grand Prix four times, while his father, Jon, raced Formula 5000, and his cousins, Alex and Will, race V8 Supercars.
