INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ Indy Racing League driver Affonso Giaffone was listed in good condition early today at a hospital after a crash at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

IRL officials said the 29-year-old Brazilian was bothered by back pain Thursday after hitting the wall on Turn 1 test-driving a G Force-Aurora-Firestone fielded by Jonathan Byrd-Cunningham Racing.

Giaffone, who did not race in the first two events this season, competed in eight races last season for Team Scandia and Chitwood Motorsports. He finished fourth in the VisionAire 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway in July.
