Pippa Mann in the No. 63 Dale Coyne Racing Honda-Dallara tangled with a couple of Indianapolis Motor Speedway walls and walked away after a rocky ride during practice here late this afternoon at the Brickyard.

Exiting Turn 4 high, Mann realized that the cars in front of her were checking up and she failed to make the correction she needed to keep the car’s downforce in place. She first hit the inside wall, then spun in the wall attenuator (or crash cushion) covering the entrance to pit lane. Her car ended up resting against the outside wall.

She was helped from the car and walked under her own power to the safety truck. Mann then visited the infield hospital, was checked out and cleared to drive.
