The biggest week in Kurt Busch's racing career got off to a rough start on Monday, as Busch wrecked during practice at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Busch was fine, but sustained damage to the right side of his car. Video of the wreck:

"If you're going to have it, best to do it early in the week," Busch said after the wreck, adding that he may have gotten too comfortable out on the track.

Busch is attempting to run the double, both the Indy 500 and the Coca-Cola 600, on Sunday. He'll start the Indy 500 race at noon, then jet to Charlotte in time for the NASCAR race. He already doubled up this past Saturday, starting qualifying at Indy and flying to Charlotte for the All-Star race.
