Indy 500 Bourdais

ONLY ON AP: Bourdais determined to return for season finale

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Sebastien Bourdais was in one of the best race cars he'd ever had, so fast that most of his competitors thought he would win the pole for the Indianapolis 500.

Instead, he crashed during qualifying at Indianapolis Motor Speedway last weekend, hitting the wall at 227 mph and with 118 Gs of force. He fractured his pelvis, a hip and two ribs when his car exploded into pieces and spun through Turn 2 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

On Saturday, Bourdais vowed to be back in a car this season.
