F1 race boss shunts at Daytona

Indianapolis Motor Speedway owner Tony George - the man who runs the United States Grand Prix - decided this year to make a racing comeback despite the fact that he has not driven a race car since 2001.

The 47-year-old used his Vision Racing IRL team to enter a Crawford-Porsche for the Daytona 24 Hours, listing his stepson Ed Carpenter, Tomas Scheckter and Anthony Foyt as his co-drivers. The car, which was acquired from Eddie Cheever, was testing at Daytona on Friday when George lost control and crashed. He emerged unscathed.
