When IndyCar meets puddle, puddle wins

The tiniest force of nature beats one of the grandest efforts of human technology.

IndyCars are marvels of technology: sleek, aerodynamic beauties with enormous, hulking engines that can speed over 200 miles per hour. They're magnificent triumphs, a true wonder of human technology.

They do have one bitter rival though: the puddle.

That's Ryan Hunter-Reay during qualifying for the Indianapolis Grand Prix. As the YouTube poster notes, he wasn't alone:

A rain storm had moved through prior to session. Cars were getting sideways due to a puddle in Turn 14. I witnessed Sebastian Saavedra and Jack Hawksworth get very crossed up here. Decided to pull out the camera to capture someone get sideways. The very next car through was Ryan Hunter-Reay which not only got sideways but couldn't save the massive slide.
