Video: Accident Between Kyle Kirkwood and Felix Rosenqvist Results in Flying Tire

Kyle Kirkwood found himself upside down in turn two at Indianapolis, after a crash involving him and Felix Rosenqvist that sent a tire flying over the catchfence.

INDIANAPOLIS — Felix Rosenqvist’s light wall contact exiting Turn 1 on Lap 183 of the 2023 Indianapolis 500 set off a chain reaction that resulted in a tire coming off of Kyle Kirkwood’s car and hitting a passenger car outside of Turn 2.

Rosenqvist briefly brushed the wall exiting Turn 1, causing the No. 6 Arrow McLaren Chevrolet to hit the wall multiple times with damaged suspension. As the Swede tried to move his car down to the warmup lane in Turn 2, the car spun and collected Kirkwood.
