How About That Indy500?

Wish I knew more of the drivers and sponsors like I did 30 years ago. Bob

That was a great finish. All of the cars had either a Chevy or Honda engine so I was pulling for any American using Chevy power. When the French guy Pagenaud was passed by the American Rossi with 3 laps to go I thought it was his race but then Pagenaud passed him back with one lap to go. It was the first time a guy from France won the race since 1920 but at least his car had a Chevy engine. That was an outstanding finish. Here's a video of the last 10 laps...

Yes, it was one of the best I've seen.  Exciting, real racing to the finish, as it should be!  What a tradition!

I agree, I'm not a big fan of open wheel racing, but the last 50 laps of that race was full of intrigue, anger, and angst.....and the best camera angles for a wreck I've ever seen....plus,the last 15 laps had me on the edge of my seat!

I'm glad the Chevy won, too. Congratulations to driver and team.

It indeed was a great race!  That said the coverage provided by NBC was simply horrendous IMHO!
