Kevin Lacroix gets bumped off the podium

Indianapolis, June 18. -- Kevin Lacroix could not complete the first race of the double header weekend today when he was bumped by another competitor while passing for third place. He had been trying to pass for a few laps on many occasions but the other competitor was deliberately blocking every tentative. With a few laps to go, he made another move at the end of the long stretch, was blocked and went inside instead: that's when the same car hit his front end and ended his day. "I can't understand why nothing was done with this guy (Summerton), said Lacroix, who will run only two weekends this year. It took Richard (Philippe) many laps to get by him because he was doing the same thing. Now, I don't score any points because of his behaviour on the track."

Lacroix started sixth today and was fighting for third place when the incident happened, a few laps from the end. For the second race tomorrow morning, Lacroix will start third again behind Summertton and Philippe.
