Franchitti's Career Ends

Three time Indianapolis 500 winner Dario Franchitti says that doctors have told him he can no longer race because of injuries sustained in an IndyCar crash last month. Franchitti fractured his spine, broke his right ankle and suffered a concussion in the October 6th crash in Houston. The crash occurred on the last lap when his car made contact with another car and went sailing into a fence. The 40-year old underwent two surgeries on his ankle and recently returned home to Scotland to recover.
