Ok...That was one of the most fun 500's I've seen it awhile. Big win for Helio. A team that didn't exist 2 years ago wins it in their second year.


And poor Graham Rahal. He is leading, pits and coming back onto the track his left rear wheel flys off and he crashes. Somebody's head is going to roll in their pit crew. Watching other pit stops the guy on the right front wheel is usually holding a hand up telling the driver when to go. We didn't see anyone doing that this stop and it looks like he went when he thought it was good to go. You could see the guy putting on the left rear wheel fall over when Graham left. That sucked.

Helio joins an elite group of four-time winners of the Indy 500.

Messed up pit stop, I'm not sure whose to blame on that one. The left rear tire mounted way later than the right rear tire.
