In the history of all auto racing crashes, this is one of the worst ones you’ll ever see. And somehow driver Scott Dixon walked away just about unscathed.

Which, when you watch the carnage in the video below, will make you wonder how that hell that ever could have happened.

Immediately after the crash, the red flag came out, meaning the race was temporarily suspended while race officials attended to Dixon and the other driver involved, Jay Howard, and to fix the fence and clean up the track.

Obviously, Dixon’s day was finished after the crash, but at least he could conduct interviews afterward, even with a walking boot on one of his feet.

Yes, “a bit of a rough ride,” indeed.
