LONG POND, PA. (AP) - James Hinchcliffe’s bid for his fourth IndyCar Series win ended before the second lap.

Hinchcliffe hit the Pocono Raceway wall heading into the first turn on Sunday. He started third behind Andretti Autosport teammates Marco Andretti and Ryan Hunter-Reay.

“It’s devastating. I feel bad for the team,” he said after he was released from the infield care center.

Hinchcliffe, who has a series-high three wins, limped as he walked out of his car. He said he just banged up one of his knees.

IndyCar made its return to Pocono for the first time since 1989.
