Pippa Mann has been checked out and released from the medical center without injury after wrecking in the final hour of practice at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Mann came off slightly high exiting Turn 4 in the No. 63 Susan G. Komen Honda for Dale Coyne Racing, and hit the inside retaining wall on corner exit. She ran just behind Marco Andretti in the No. 27 Snapple Honda car in the corner, in a slightly higher lane in dirty air, prior to the spin.

From there, the car’s speed decreased but not enough to avoid a secondary impact. Her car hit the attenuator on the pit wall of pit in, and slid back across the track.

Mann has got out of the car. Track crews are repairing the attenuator while also tending to Mann’s stranded car.

It’s the second incident of the day after Helio Castroneves’ aerial somersault earlier in the day.
