Ryan Hunter-Reay Gets His First Win At Indy
It was a perfect day for the running of the 98th Indianapolis 500. The final laps made the race particularly exciting as three-time winner Helio Castroneves traded the lead with Ryan Hunter-Reay in the final five laps of the race. In the end, Hunter-Reay edged out Castroneves by .060 seconds, making it the second closest finish in the race's history. Hunter-Reay is the first American to win the race in eight years. Sam Hornish, Jr. is the most recent American winner in 2006. Marco Andretti finished third, followed by fourth place finisher Carlos Munoz and fifth place finisher Juan Pablo Montoya. NASCAR's Kurt Busch got an impressive six place finish in his rookie race before hopping a plane to Charlotte where he will race in tonight's Coca-Cola 600. A collision between pole-sitter Ed Carpenter and James Hinchcliffe on lap 176 following a restart tragically ended their day. They were both running at or near the front most of the day before their crash. Yellow caution flags were a rare sight today. The first caution lap didn't come out until lap 150.

Congrats to Ryan!!
I was thrilled to see Sage Karam (19 year old rookie) in 9th! He was my driver for the two-seater ride which meant my life was in the hands of an 18 year old young man driving 175 mph.
