The Indianapolis Motor Speedway was meant to be having a full day of Cooper Tire testing for the Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires.
Zach Veach was the one undertaking the testing in a Belardi Auto Racing Dallara IL-15 Mazda.
Veach had a busy morning, noting he’d run two full race distances.

Here’s a number of tweets and social posts from near IMS for this tornado:
