You get huge cloud for­ma­tions at COTA (the Cir­cuit of the Amer­i­cas). You can see them rolling in from the tower. That’s what cre­ated the shadow in the left-hand part of the frame. I dis­tinctly re­call this shot be­com­ing a race within a race, for its suc­cess re­lied en­tirely on the car be­ing in the frame be­fore the fast-mov­ing shadow swal­lowed the re­main­ing light and killed the im­age.
