Indianapolis 500 Race

The only car racing event that is on peoples minds right now is the Indianapolis 500 race and being an event that takes place only once a year there is no surprise behind it. The race started and finished with a lot of interesting stories behind it and some of the interesting things that happened left one of the favorites trailing in ninth position by the end of it, yes this person that I talk about is none other than Castroneves who told us that it was ’silly mistakes’ at the end of it which left him and his team trailing in the end.

The winner of the Indianapolis 500 race was Dario Franchitti who took the audience by surprise when he managed to last his empty tank enough to win the race – and then some more. He was short on fuel in the last few laps with the last lap leaving him only a gallon and a half to complete the Indianapolis 500 race. He took it and left Dan Wheldon biting his dust as he slowly edged his lead over the British winner of the 2005 Indy 500. So there you have your first two, Dario Franchitti and then Dan Wheldon.

Now I will move to Danica Patrick, the woman who left the whole world watching as she took turn after turn with utmost perfection, gaining on those who were ahead of her – for she did qualify in twenty-third position – and leaving those behind her far far behind. In the course of the Indianapolis 500 race event Danica overtook seventeen drivers to finish in sixth position, something that has won her her fifth top ten finish in the last five years.
