During the last lap in the October 6, 2013 race at Houston, the Target Chip Ganassi Racing driver hit the wall.

Four time IndyCar Series winner (Franchitti also won the Indy 500 three times), was told by medical professionals that he must stop car racing if he wants to have any quality of life.

Dario, we wish you well!.
