Cunningham crashes, but will start No. 2

FORT WORTH, Texas -- Wade Cunningham wrecked his car in the first race -- the car was actually the one Dan Wheldon won the Indy 500 in -- but will start the second race on the outside of Row 1.

Cunningham was the second driver to make his random draw choice. Drivers picked a tire on the big stage on the frontstretch and his tire said No. 2. So he'll do that likely in a backup car. That should be interesting. Maybe it's a sign the rookie's luck is changing.
