Wind gusts do minor damage at IMS
A pre-dawn storm that packed wind gusts of 70 mph did some minor damage to team equipment around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

A.J. Foyt's pit wagon, containing the computers the team uses to download on-board telemetry, was blown over on its side on pit lane. It took several crew members and a floor jack to right the cart.

The computers came through unscathed, according to team director Larry Foyt, but the antenna suffered damage.

In the adjoining pit, Vision Racing equipment suffered some cosmetic damage.

The storm caused breakfast in the Panther Racing hospitality area to be canceled. High winds ripped off the awning and bent most of the metal support poles.

It was "Patio City" later as hamburgers for lunch were being cooked on an outdoor grill. Indy Star
