Special notes for May 16, 1995:

Bryan Herta crashed hard into the wall, coming out of turn four, but is okay. He was unconcious when his car came to rest, and was sent to Methodist Hospital for a CatScan. He has a concussion, but is basically OKAY.

The problem is that he was driving his primary car! The tub was damaged and is being sent back to Reynard, UK, for repairs.
