Dale Coyne with Vasser Sullivan Racing’s Santino Ferrucci in the No.18 Team SealMaster Honda has accepted responsibly for his clash with Arrow McLaren SP’s Oliver Askew in the No.7 Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet at the end of the First Responder 175 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Saturday.
Ferrucci said that the incident happened due to his experience competing in the NASCAR eSeries events.
Ferrucci and Askew collided as they headed to the finish line with the pair finishing the race in third and fourth place respectively.
Ferrucci said at the end of the day he would never do what he did on Saturday in real life racing and he does not expect rivalries that developed from the iRacing Challenge to spill over to real racing as all rivalries on track were pre existing.
The Connecticut native said he believes that the drivers will talk it over before they go racing again.
The 2020 NTT IndyCar Series season is set to get underway on Saturday June 6 with the Genesys 600 at Texas Motor Speedway.
