Indy 500: Will Power, Wife Liz Freak Out After Thrilling Victory

Person found dead in Indianapolis Motor Speedway parking lot police say

Defending race victor Takuma Sato was also knocked out when he ran into the back of a slower vehicle.

"I always wondered if I was going to win it, and thoughts went through my mind, in my career", Power said. Kanaan's crash with 12 laps remaining set up a final restart with Oriol Servia out front. But all three needed enough gas to get to the finish line, and it was Power who was frantically chasing them down.

"I was hoping to win", Rossi said. "We got to drink the milk!" referring to the tradition of drinking milk in the race's coveted victory lane. Bourdais' caution period allowed race leader Power and pole sitter Carpenter to reach the 200-lap distance on one more pit stop in what became a strategy-jumbling final third of the race.

"He and I love racing together".

"I'm not really sure what happened", she told reporters after being checked out at the infield medical center.

"I don't know if fun was the right word; we were trying to take the opportunities that were given to us and execute with that we have".

Scott Dixon stretched his fuel to finish third and was followed by Alexander Rossi, who drove from 32nd to fourth and made some of the most spectacular moves in the race. Rossi had no choice: It was hard to pass in the 2018 auto on a day that fell just 2 degrees short - it was 91 degrees - of being the hottest 500 in history. But IndyCar has new cars, and the warm, humid weather made handling them even more complicated on the 2.5-mile oval.

"It's hard to say no to him, isn't it?" said Penske, who already had promised Castroneves a ride for 2019 if he won Sunday.

"Probably went wide in turn three and probably was a little of dust in the tires and then as soon as I came to three and I tried to pass Simon (Pagenaud) but the rear just gave out", Castroneves said.

Patrick was completing the "Danica Double" after wrecking out at the Daytona 500.

Chip Ganassi Racing's Ed Jones lost control coming out of Turn 2 and spun into the wall on Lap 58, mashing the right side of his Honda. It's both of them. "I had all my people around me, so I was in good spirits". "It just didn't come today".

France's Sebastian Bourdais, back at Indy a year after he suffered hip and pelvic injuries in qualifying last year, three-time victor Helio Castroneves of Brazil and 2013 victor Tony Kanaan of Brazil also failed to make it to the finish.

Before leaving the Brickyard that had been the stage for many of her career highlights, Patrick fulfilled one final obligation sucking up her disappointment for a meeting with the media she so often had a love-hate relationship with. The former NASCAR star is the only female driver to lead laps in the Indy 500 and the Daytona 500, creating a strong brand and becoming a role model for little girls everywhere.
