Fellow driver Tony Kanaan was behind Castroneves when Kanaan experienced total brake failure. His car took out the right side of Castroneves car. Neither driver was injured but there was too much damage to salvage Castoneves’ ride. A back-up car was brought in.

Likes: seasons with no more than 13 episodes, anti-heroes and binge-watching. Dislikes: when cartoon characters make out, when TV shows name check their titles, drawn out premieres and finales. TV words to live by: "If every porkchop was perfect, we wouldn't have hot dogs."
