INDIANAPOLIS – Conor Daly was in the best position he’s ever been in Sunday’s Indianapolis 500 — this being his eighth time racing in it.

Meanwhile, Graham Rahal was coming out of the pits on lap 118. The issue: By the time Rahal made it to the track, he only had three tires. 

Rahal appeared to have left his pit before an all-clear signal while the left rear tire was still loose. Rahal spun into the wall while his loose tire bounced around the track.

Daly saw Rahal spinning toward the outside, so he took the inside path to avoid any contact. Daly thought he was safe until a tire came straight at him.

“This giant tire just flew out of the sky,” Daly said moments after finishing the race in 13th. “I had no idea.”
