The IndyCar race in Madison, Ill., lost a lot of its big names before the field even reach the starting line, including three of Andretti Autosport’s five entries.

Alexander Rossi, Simon Pagenaud, Marco Andretti, Zach Veach, Oliver Askew and Ed Carpenter all got caught up in a pileup near the rear of the field as the green flag dropped Saturday. 

The incident began as rookie Alex Palou jumped out of the grid as pole-sitter Will Power took a while to ramp the field up toward the green flag. As the Dale Coyne Racing driver jumped out to the inside, fellow rookie Askew jumped the start and flew into the back of Pagenaud, who qualified 13th and was starting on the inside of Row 7. The 2019 Indy 500 champion then ricocheted into the back of Rossi two rows ahead, spinning the No. 27 Honda.
