Bryan Herta Autosport secures final starting spot in Indy 500
Saavedra, a 19-year-old rookie driver from Colombia, crashed the Bryan Herta Autosport car while preparing for a second qualifying run on Bump Day at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
He learned from a hospital room his qualifying run from earlier in the day was good enough to put him in the field for Sunday's Indy 500.
