Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing driver Charlie Kimball suffered a fractured fifth metacarpal of his right hand during Thursday's 18-driver 11-team test at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, according to INDYCAR medical director, Michael Olinger.
Often caused by punching a hard object, a fractured fifth metacarpal (also known as 'boxers fracture') is located on the far right side of Kimball's right hand near the pinky finger.
According to INDYCAR, Kimball will be re-evaluated Friday, July 27 in Indianapolis.
