This weekend, in an abbreviated IndyCar showdown at Texas Motor Speedway, Conor Daly collided with Josef Newgarden, turning Newgarden's car onto its side before pushing him headfirst into the safety barrier in what looked like a potentially catastrophic wreck. Thankfully Newgarden's roll bar did what it's designed to do—save drivers' lives—punching a hole in the safety barrier (which IndyCar says requires about 50 Gs of force) and allowing the Ed Carpenter driver to walk away more or less unscathed. Check out the wreck from multiple angles above.
