Kanaan Wins Indy


Tony Kanaan has won the Indianapolis 500.

Following a caution on lap 194 caused by a spinning Graham Rahal, the race went back to green with three laps to go and Kanaan running 2nd. Pulling out of the single-file restart as the green flag flew, Kanaan dove to the inside of Ryan Hunter-Reay as 3rd place runner Carlos Munoz took the outside line. Splitting Hunter-Reay entering Turn 1, the fith and final caution flew when Dario Franchitti made heavy wall contact in the first turn.

With just a few yellow flag laps to complete before being handed his chosen bottle of 2% milk, Kanaan was already basking in victory. "I wanna pass the freaking pace car," Kanaan said over his radio. "That's my car by the way."

Doubling last year's record of 34 lead changes with 68 this year, 14 drivers led laps in a race with an average speed of 187.433 mph, both also records.
