Graf/Pickett Porsche R Spyder to miss Mid-Ohio race after huge shunt After enjoying the highs of victory less than two weeks ago at Lime Rock Park, Muscle Milk Team CytoSport endured contrasting emotions today following a massive testing crash at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course that has forced the team to withdraw from this weekend's race.
Everything was running smoothly in the test session for the Muscle Milk squad as they were sitting atop the speed charts. But then with less than 10 minutes to go, Greg Pickett was involved in a huge accident.
Pickett found himself a passenger aboard the Porsche RS Spyder due to a mechanical issue with the car and ended up going straight into the tire barrier at Turn 4.
After hitting nose first, the #6 Muscle Milk car flipped upside down and came to a rest atop the tire barrier.
As a testament to the safety of the Porsche RS Spyder, which absorbed most of the impact, Pickett came out of the shunt unscathed with only a few aches and pains.
Due to the severity of the crash, with damage to the tub of the car, Muscle Milk Team CytoSport had no choice but to sit out this weekend's Mid-Ohio Sports Car Challenge as they await the arrival of a new tub.
The team will now be heading back to it's Indianapolis base at the Mark One Composite facilities and start preparing for the upcoming race at Road America in two weeks.
