An American driver has won the 98th renewal of the Indianapolis 500 in the second closest finish in the history of the event.
Ryan Hunter-Reay gives Andretti Autosport its 3rd win for car owner Michael Andretti in a finish over Helio Castroneves with four racers finishing in the top 6 overall. Andretti admitted RHR ran a perfect last 6 laps for the win and Helio said post-game, laughingly, that it's still a good day when finishing second sucks.
Two drivers who had a shot, James Hinchcliffe and Ed Carpenter, caused the contenders to thin out a little bit with 26 laps to go
And a Townsend Bell crash with ten to go caused a red flag situation with all the debris on the track
After the track was cleared, it came down to Hunter-Reay and Castroneves
