Spies out of Indy GP with shoulder injury

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - American Ben Spies will not compete in this weekend's Indianapolis Grand Prix after dislocating his left shoulder during Saturday morning's practice.

Spies was injured when he went over the handlebars and crashed hard into the asphalt on Indy's 2.621-mile, 16-turn road course. About 90 minutes later, doctors declared him ``unfit'' to compete Sunday.

It's another obstacle for Spies, who had season-ending surgery on his right shoulder after a big crash in October. He started the first two races of the season, but continued problems with the shoulder has kept him off the track ever since.

Spies attempted to make a comeback in Italy in June but wound up not starting the race. Indy was supposed to be his next attempt at a comeback, but that has now been derailed, too.
