Ed Carpenter isn't comfortable as a team owner putting too many restrictions on his drivers, not even a breakout young star thick in the championship race.
Carpenter didn't lose his cool when Rinus VeeKay called to tell the boss he'd fallen off his bicycle on a training ride and broken his collarbone.
Rinus VeeKay was on a 75-mile training ride when he lost control of his bicycle, flew over the handlebars and landed so hard that he cracked his helmet and his left shoulder.
He said he twice nearly blacked out on the trail from the pain, and his trainer had to leave him to go to the main road and call an ambulance.
Rinus VeeKay was injured in a cycling accident and will miss IndyCar's race at Road America in Wisconsin this weekend, Ed Carpenter Racing said Tuesday.
The team said VeeKay had surgery to repair a broken left clavicle and was being treated by IndyCar's medical staff.
