WEST ALLIS, Wis. (AP) – Tony Kanaan is expected to drive at the Milwaukee Mile despite bumps and bruises he received in a hard crash at the Indianapolis 500.

Andretti Green Racing made the announcement on Friday ahead of the race on Sunday.

Kanaan’s rear suspension broke near the halfway point of last Sunday’s race, sending his car bouncing off the wall twice at over 180 mph. The crash was the latest in a series of hard-luck incidents at Indy for Kanaan, who also lost the series points lead.

Kanaan wrote on his Twitter feed earlier this week that he didn’t break any ribs in the crash.

“Feels like (it’s) broken but it’s not so,” he wrote. “Great news.”
