Jimmie Johnson has drawn the second Caution period of Fast Friday after glancing the wall at Indianapolis.
The seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion scuffed the wall exiting Turn 2, almost 90 minutes into the session.
Despite the mark which the #48 Chip Ganassi Racing entry left on the barrier, Johnson was able to drive back to the lane.
Johnson is hardly the only driver to struggle with Turn 2 so far, with wind gusts exceeding 50km/h creating a significant challenge.
“I was just trying to understand the low-downforce trim setting and obviously the wind direction is pretty massive today,” he explained back in the lane.
“So, I felt like I had the corner made and I think that's why I touched the wall so square.
“But just late exit, I think the wind was to my backside, and I just needed six more inches out there and I didn't have it.”
Johnson added, “It was just a touch with the side; certainly not something I want to do [but] certainly got away with one at these speeds, but live and learn, here we go.”
Thus far, only Pato O'Ward (McLaren SP) has completed a four-lap run, and even that dropped from a 231.798mph (373.043km/h) on the first lap to a 227.854mph (366.695km/h) on the fourth, with a 230.111mph (370.328km/h) average over the run.
During the first hour, there was a Caution period of around 30 minutes due to Race Control losing power.
“That's about as good as you can hit the wall at Indianapolis and get away with it,” says @Hinchtown.
