    INDIANAPOLIS — Helio Castroneves returned to the track near the end of Wednesday’s session after escaping injury when his car crashed and flipped earlier in the day during practice for the Indianapolis 500.

    “I didn’t expect to go flipping backward,” Castroneves said after he returned. “I was very surprised by that. I was expecting a big shunt and big issues, but it was just like I spun out at any other racetrack.”

    Castroneves recorded the 15th-fastest lap of the 33-car field — 226.670 mph — after his crew took the undamaged parts and engine from Castroneves’ wrecked No. 3 Team Penske Chevrolet and put them on a new tub.

    Team owner Roger Penske said the team’s engineers were looking into the reasons why the car — equipped with a new Chevrolet speedway aero kit being used for the first time at Indianapolis Motor Speedway — flipped when it turned backward.

    Pretty soft landing, could have been bad if it hit the fence.
