Sage Karam Medical Update


Verizon IndyCar Series driver Sage Karam was released from Lehigh Valley Hospital – Cedar Crest in Allentown, Pa., on Aug. 23 after evaluation of his right heel and left wrist following an incident earlier that day during the race at Pocono Raceway.

Karam was transported by ground to the hospital following the crash on Lap 180. According to Dr. Terry Trammell, INDYCAR medical consultant, CT scans revealed no broken bones for the Chip Ganassi Racing Teams driver from Nazareth, Pa. Karam, 20, will be re-evaluated before being cleared to drive.

"First and foremost, I just hope everything is OK with Justin Wilson," Karam said. "Justin is the priority and everything else is secondary at this point. As far as the race, we had a really great race car and I felt comfortable and in a position to be in striking distance for the win. The car just unfortunately came around on me in the middle of Turn 1 and I had no indication it was about to go."
