Race Favorite Tony Kanaan Knocks Himself Out of the 500

Indianapolis 500 favorite Tony Kanaan is now out of the race.

We were sitting here in the Media Center at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, watching the ABC broadcast, and we got to see the replay from Kanaan's onboard camera. There was a loud pop, he plowed into the wall, and a aghast "OOH!" from the journalists in the room. There was a spray — fuel? brake fluid — on the onboard camera, and Tony's car was on fire.

"Oh my God, I hope he's okay," said Danica Patrick over the radio.

We all watched him walk to the ambulance, so he's at least all right enough to watch the race from the pit.
