Massive pile up shortens Baltimore ALMS race

Scott Tucker talks about his wreck at the start of the ALMS race.

The American Le Mans Series race at Baltimore this afternoon got off to a rough start, as six different cars had their day cut short just as the green flag was dropped.

Two of the P1 cars got a every slow start, backing the field up as the streamed past the chicane on Pratt Street. Scott Tucker was clipped by Anthony Lazzaro turning his around in front of the whole field.

A handful of cars from the GT field then plowed into the stopped car of Tucker.

“It’s an unfortunate situation, as I’m still not sure exactly what happened other than I got hit from behind and spun in the wall,” Tucker told NBC Sports. “Then there were 3 or 4 GT cars that were coming straight at me right there. I knew it was going to be a bit hit. At a higher speed it could have been more serious.”

Three Porsche 911 GT3 RSRs, and the #62 Risi Competizone Ferrari F458 and the #93 SRT Viper piled in after the spin.

All drivers escaped without injury. The race was red flagged, and caused the race to be shortened.
