Simon Pagenaud’s season was cut short due to a crash at Mid-Ohio caused by brake failure, resulting in his missing eight races due to a concussion. Despite undergoing checkups, he has not been cleared to resume driving and will have to wait until the post-season to make a return in testing. Pagenaud is focused on his health and recovery, acknowledging the unique time frame for concussion recovery.
