Hinchcliffe released from hospital

James Hinchcliffe was released from IU Health Methodists Hospital in Indianapolis on May 26 and is now recovering at his Indianapolis home.

The Canadian spent eight days in the hospital following an injury suffered during practice for the 99th Running of the Indianapolis 500 that caused severe trauma in his left thigh and pelvis. A piece of the right front suspension failed which sent the #5 Arrow Electronics Honda into the turn 3 SAFER barrier and a piece of suspension penetrated the cockpit, causing Hinchcliffe’s injuries.

He is expected to make a full recovery and doctors determined that no further procedures were needed.

Ryan Briscoe subbed for Hinchcliffe at the Indianapolis 500 and Conor Daly will fill in this weekend’s Chevrolet Dual in Detroit.
