Spin and Win… Part Two.. Dario spins in pits and recovers to become a three-time Champion.
While the fans and teams were ready to see yet another fantastic race, all had their minds in Dan Wheldon, last year’s winner. As fans entered the speedway, they were given a special set of paper white sunglasses, in honor of Wheldon’s stylish glasses he wore during his career. Fans wore them on the special parade lap as well as laps 26 & 98, the car numbers Dan drove in his two victories at Indy.
Several of Dan’s former teammates and friends wore real white glasses during pre-race ceremonies. Wheldon, known as “Lionheart” was never far from everyone’s thoughts the entire day…and you could almost feel him looking down on everyone today.

Celebrating the victory and friendship.. In Victory Lane
Franchitti slipped the wreath over his head and took a healthy sip of cool milk in the 91-degree mid-afternoon heat in Victory Circle at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. First, however, he donned a pair of white cardboard sunglasses -- a tribute to longtime friend, teammate, competitor and fellow Indianapolis 500 champion Dan Wheldon.
Dario Franchiti..."Now my face on the Borg-Warner Trophy will be on either side of Dan's," A few minutes later, in Victory Circle, Franchitti looked to the sky as a salute to Wheldon.
Bad Luck for Marco again.. The curse continues
"(Oriol) Servia decided to run two-wide at Indianapolis for two consecutive laps and makes me turn in from the white line. I had no hope of making that corner because not only am I turning in from the white line, he just crossed my bow, so I was completely out of it. Nothing I can do. I'm disappointed. I definitely rang my bell. I'm disappointed for the RC Cola guys; they deserved it. It wasn't over by any means at that point." Said Andretti.
Not all drivers were ready to celebrate…
Takuma Sato remains adamant that Indy 500 winner Dario Franchitti did not give him enough space when the Japanese driver tried to pass him for the lead on the final lap of the race.
The former Formula 1 racer charged up from 19th place on the grid to emerge as a solid contender for the win, leading on three occasions for a total of 31 laps.
After the final restart, Sato moved into second position and dived inside Franchitti at Turn 1 on the final lap. He lost control of his car, however, and crashed into the wall, finishing in 17th place.
The Rahal Letterman Lanigan driver said Franchitti had pushed him too hard when he tried to pass.
"On the last restart, we jumped from seventh to fifth, then taking fourth, third, second. I kept pushing and overtaking. I went for the win on the very last lap," said Sato. "I saw a good opportunity coming out of Turn 4, getting a good tow from Dario and I was already down the inside before Turn 1. We were side by side and into Turn 1 he didn't really give me enough space."
"I was pushed down below the white line, way below the white line, so there is no grip, and started sliding and lost control." Sato did feel it was a great effort, even after the last lap accident. "What an incredible weekend.
Not only the weekend, but also the month of May. I was going for the win. On the last restart, we jumped from seventh to fifth, then taking fourth, third, second. I kept pushing and overtaking. On the very last lap, I had a good tow from Dario. I thought I had the job done. But he kept pushing and didn't give me enough room, so that I was well below the white line. But an outstanding job by the team. It was a very exciting race”
Team boss Bobby Rahal hailed Sato's drive in only his second Indy 500 appearance, and he defended the Japanese's attempt to go for the win.
"It's a shame because Takuma drove a fantastic race and the crew did job," said Rahal. "What I am most pleased about is that we are not the most well-funded team out there and yet we are going head to head with the most well-funded team out there, so we are getting a lot of bang for our buck.
"I feel for Takuma because he did a super job. I don't blame him at all. When you see the opportunity you've got to go for it – especially with one lap to go in the Indy 500. I'm proud of the job he did and proud of the job the guys did, and I feel bad for them because they deserved a little bit better."
In the end, the heat of the day did not seem to stop fans from enjoying the race. It was not a record temperature, but hot none the less.
All in all, yet another great race at the famed Brickyard. The new cars did great.. Lots of passing and truly a great race to watch.
2011 Indianapolis 500
From Elation to Frustration, Hildebrand Crashes in final turn to give race win to Wheldon
Wheldon only led about a thousand feet.. but it was the last thousand
ABC’s Wild World of Sports coined a phrase back in the day.. “The Thrill of Victory and the Agony of defeat.”
Today, the thrill and agony was viewed by more than 300,000 fans and countless viewers around the racing world.
Despite the heavy damage, the National Guard machine rolled past the Yard of Bricks in second position behind race winner and former Panther driver , Wheldon.
Panther Racing rookie driver JR Hildebrand led the historic 100th Anniversary of the Indianapolis 500 on three different occasions and came within a few hundred yards of winning what was billed as “The most important race in history” Hildebrand had taken the lead from second year driver Bertrand Bequette on lap 198 and was heading for sure victory until his National Guard drifted high into the marbles in turn four while trying to pass the lapped car of Charlie Kimball and hit the wall hard.
Hildebrand leads in the short chute between turns three and four..on the final lap
"I was just trying to go as hard as I could," continued Wheldon, who was competing in his first race of the season. "I knew it was the last lap and I knew some of those guys were struggling with fuel (he pitted on Lap 177). I've been runner-up two years before this, but I never gave up. It's an incredible feeling."
Hildebrand, who inherited the lead when Baguette pitted, said he was trying to conserve fuel (he last pitted on Lap 164) on the white flag lap.
"I knew we were really tight on fuel coming to the end, and the spotters were in my ear saying, 'The guys are coming and they're coming hard,' '' said Hildebrand, who qualified 12th (the fastest rookie). "We had to conserve a little fuel and the tires were coming to the end of their stint. I was hanging a little on to get the thing around.
"I made a judgment call catching up on the 83 (the lapped car driven by fellow rookie Charlie Kimball) and I thought I don't really want to slow down behind him and pull out on the straightaway, and I've been able to make this move on the outside before and so I went to the high side and because it was at the end of the stint I got up in the marbles and that was it.
"I'm OK, but this is not really about me at this point. You always show up to try to win. My disappointment is for the team and for National Guard as a sponsor. It's one of the those things, as a driver, you never really know what you're going to expect. We knew we had a fast race car. We knew if the race came to us, we may be in a position to sort of finish top three, top five."
Wheldon’s No. 98 William Rast-CURB/Big Machine car passed Hildebrand just before the yellow light was displayed, winning the race.
"It's a fantastic achievement everybody at Bryan Herta Autosport," said Wheldon, his voice choking with emotion. "I love everything about Indianapolis - the tradition, the fans, the history."
“I was just trying to go as hard as I could," said Wheldon, who was competing in his first race of the season. "I knew it was the last lap and I knew some of those guys were struggling with fuel (he pitted on Lap 177). I've been runner-up two years before this, but I never gave up. It's an incredible feeling."
England native Wheldon, started the race sixth and became just the 18th driver to win the Indianapolis 500 race at least twice. Wheldon won the 2005 race driving for Andretti Racing and also captured the 2005 IndyCar Series title. He has an impressive record at the Brickyard with six top-four finishes in nine career starts, including second, second and first in the last three years, respectively.
Hildebrand, who started 12th, crossed the famous "Yard of Bricks" start-finish line on three wheels to place second, earning $1,064,895. He also won the prestigious Indianapolis 500 Chase Rookie of the Year Award, which includes a $25,000 bonus and the Chase Rookie of the Year Trophy.
Graham Rahal climbed from the 29th starting spot to finish third in the No. 38 Service Central car fielded by Service Central Chip Ganassi Racing, the best position advancement of any driver in this year's race. He earned $646,945 for his career-best Indianapolis finish.
Tony Kanaan earned $438,745 for charging from 22nd to fourth in his #82 GEICO KV Racing Technology-Lotus. It was the fourth top-five finish at Indianapolis for 2004 IZOD IndyCar Series champion Kanaan.
2008 Indianapolis 500 winner Scott Dixon, who started in the middle of the front row and led a race-high 73 laps in his No. 9 Target Chip Ganassi Racing entry, earned $519,345 for finishing fifth. It was the fourth top-five finish at Indianapolis for two-time IZOD IndyCar Series champion Dixon.
2011 marks the fourth consecutive runner-up finish for Panther Racing in the Indianapolis 500 with three different drivers: Vitor Meira in 2008, Dan Wheldon in 2009-2010 and now in 2011 with Hildebrand. The second place finish vaulted Hildebrand eight places in the 2011 IZOD IndyCar Series Points standings to eighth overall and put some separation in the 2011 Rookie of the Year battle with James Hinchcliffe. Hildebrand now leads the chase by 33 points.
Wheldon earned $2,567,255 from an overall purse of $13,509,485 for his victory Sunday, May 29 in the 100th Anniversary Indianapolis 500 Mile Race.
It was the only lap of the race that Wheldon led, breaking the record for the fewest laps led by a winner, two, set by Joe Dawson in 1912.
The 100th running of the race was going along at a typical pace until the last quarter of the race when race teams made critical race changing decisions. The last 25 laps kept both fans and teams on their feet as the lead was swapped several times in the closing ten laps. The outcome became historic gave the racing world what has to be one of the most exciting races in recent years if not in history.
Next Year will bring some of the biggest changes in IndyCar history: New engines, chassis and body design. It looks like IndyCar is back and better than ever.

BASKETBALL LEGEND BIRD PRESENTS '500' WINNER'S RING TO FRANCHITTI
INDIANAPOLIS, Friday, March 18, 2011 - Two of the biggest sporting passions in Indiana - basketball and auto racing - blended for a special ceremony March 18 when NBA legend Larry Bird presented Dario Franchitti with his Herff Jones Champion of Champions ring as the winner of the 2010 Indianapolis 500.

Indiana native Bird made the presentation to two-time Indianapolis 500 winner Franchitti at the IMS Pavilion at Conseco Fieldhouse, home of the NBA's Indiana Pacers. Bird is the president of basketball operations for the Pacers.
The ceremony united two great champions in their respective sports.
Bird won three championships, three league Most Valuable Player awards and was a 12-time All-Star during his 13-season career with the Boston Celtics. He also led Indiana State to the NCAA championship game as a senior in 1979 and won a gold medal with the U.S. Olympic team in 1992.
Franchitti, a native of Scotland, earned his second Indianapolis 500 victory last year in a Target Chip Ganassi Racing entry, also winning in 2007 for Andretti Green Racing. He also has won three IZOD IndyCar Series championships since 2007, including last season.
"It's a real honor to meet Larry," Franchitti said. "I'm not a massive basketball fan, but it's like guys who are not big racing fans, they know who Mario Andretti is. Same thing, I know who Larry Bird is.
"This is a great honor to receive this ring. Fingers crossed this year we can try to catch up with Larry with the three rings. Three of these beautiful rings would be lovely. It's a big year for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, for the Indianapolis 500. It's already the biggest race in the world, but being the Centennial celebration, it adds that extra spice to it."
The 100th Anniversary Indianapolis 500 is scheduled for Sunday, May 29 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

WINNING BIDDER WILL DRIVE 2011 INDY 500 PACE CAR ON PARADE LAP
Chevrolet Camaro SS Convertible featured Jan. 22 at Barrett-Jackson auction on SPEED
INDIANAPOLIS, Thursday, Jan. 20, 2011 - A thrill of a lifetime awaits the winning bidder of the Barrett-Jackson auction Saturday, Jan. 22 for the special-edition Chevrolet Camaro Convertible that will serve as the Official Pace Car for the 2011 Indianapolis 500.
The top bidder will have the opportunity to drive the car during a parade lap in front of the field of 33 starters shortly before the green flag flies at "The Most Important Race In History" on Sunday, May 29 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
SPEED will televise the auction live between 9-11 p.m. (ET) Jan. 22, with Indianapolis 500 winners and speed milestone holders Arie Luyendyk and Tom Sneva scheduled to drive the Camaro Convertible Pace Car onto the auction stage in Scottsdale, Ariz. Luyendyk and officials from IMS and Chevrolet unveiled the car Thursday, Jan. 20 at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale.
The 2011 Camaro Convertible is the 22nd Chevrolet and the seventh Camaro chosen to pace the Indianapolis 500. This year is the 100th anniversary of the race and also the centennial year of Chevrolet.
"The Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the Chevrolet name have long been associated with one another beginning with Arthur, Louis and Gaston Chevrolet's participation as competitors in the Indianapolis 500," said Jeff Belskus, Indianapolis Motor Speedway Corporation president and chief executive officer. "It's fitting in this 100th year for IMS and Chevy that we reinforce our longtime relationship through this year's Camaro Pace Car.
"We're also thrilled that the car will be one of the featured vehicles in the world-famous Barrett-Jackson auction, with a superb incentive for the winning bidder and a vital charity involved."
Chevrolet will donate full proceeds of the auction to the David Foster Foundation (http://www.davidfosterfoundation.org), a charity devoted to supporting families with children in need of life-saving organ transplants. David Foster, the 15-time Grammy-winning music producer and songwriter, founded the organization in his native Canada. His cousin Billy Foster participated as a driver in the 1965 and 1966 Indianapolis 500.
A bidder will have the opportunity to purchase the car Saturday, Jan. 22, live on SPEED. This auctioned vehicle will not be that actual Pace Car, nor will the high bidder be the traditional celebrity Pace Car driver. The celebrity driver will be announced at a later date.
The commemorative-edition Pace Car to be auctioned Jan. 22 is one of the 50 Indianapolis 500 Festival Committee Cars. It carries lot number 1284, and bids can be submitted at the auction in person or online by clicking the following link for a 2011 absentee bidder registration packet:
This year's Pace Car and matching Festival cars feature a Summit White exterior accented with orange stripes and door graphics. The interior is trimmed in orange leather, including front seat headrests embossed with the Indy 500 logo, along with white door panels and instrument panel trim. The instrument panel trim features extensions of the orange exterior stripes.
The color combination is similar to the design used on 1969 Camaro Indianapolis 500 Pace Car replicas - cars which have become among the most popular Camaros in the collector world.
"It's an honor for Chevrolet to pace the 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis 500, especially during this landmark year," said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. "This is also a great opportunity for us to build on Camaro's strong momentum, while supporting an important charity."
Equipped with a 400-horsepower V-8 engine and six-speed automatic transmission, the actual Pace Car for the race requires no performance modifications to perform its duty in front of the 33-car racing field. All 50 of the Festival Committees cars - including the car auctioned Jan. 22 - will be SS convertible models fitted with the 2SS equipment package and RS package.

2011 INDIANAPOLIS 500 PACE CAR REPLICAS TO BE OFFERED TO CUSTOMERS
Photo By Dan Peters
CHICAGO – A special-edition Chevrolet Camaro Convertible will be the official pace car of the 2011 Indianapolis 500. Chevrolet will produce 500 matching replicas of this special Indianapolis 500 Pace Car so that enthusiasts can purchase their own piece of history.
The 2011 Camaro Convertible is the 22nd Chevrolet and the seventh Camaro chosen to pace what is known as “the greatest spectacle in racing.” Adding to that rich heritage is the fact that 2011 marks the 100th anniversary of both Chevrolet and the Indianapolis 500.
“It's an honor for Chevrolet to pace the Indianapolis 500, especially during this landmark year,” said Rick Scheidt, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. “This is also a great opportunity for us to build on Camaro’s strong momentum, pay tribute to its history and celebrate the ongoing launch of the new Camaro Convertible.”
The pace car and replicas feature a Summit White exterior accented with orange stripes and door graphics. The interior is trimmed in orange leather, with front-seat headrests embossed with the Indy 500 logo, along with white door panels and instrument panel trim. The instrument panel trim also features extensions of the orange exterior stripes.
The color combination is similar to the design used on the 1969 Camaro Indy pace car – replicas of which have become among the most popular Camaros in the collector world.
“The Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the Chevrolet name have long been associated with one another beginning with Louis and Gaston Chevrolet’s participation as competitors in the Indianapolis 500,” said Indianapolis Motor Speedway President and CEO Jeff Belskus. “It is fitting in this 100th year for both brands that we reinforce that relationship through this year’s Camaro pace car, which resembles what many argue is the most famous pace car in IMS history, the 1969 Camaro. We are looking forward to seeing this car on the track, pacing the greatest 33 drivers in the world on May 29.”
All the Indy Pace Car convertibles will be Camaro SS models equipped with the 6.2L V-8 engine, and the choice of a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.
Last month at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale classic car auction, Chevrolet auctioned the opportunity to purchase the first of 50 Indianapolis 500 Festival Committee cars.. All the proceeds from the sale went to the David Foster Foundation, which supports families with children in need of life-saving organ transplants. The Festival Committee car, which matches the styling of the actual pace car and the replicas that will be sold to the public, sold for $225,000.
All 500 pace car replicas – and the Festival Committee cars – are SS convertibles fitted with the 2SS equipment package, and offer these standard features:
Four-wheel disc brakes with Brembo four-piston calipers and hydraulic assist
StabiliTrak electronic stability control
Competitive/sport mode that enhances on-track performance
Performance Launch Control (with the manual transmission) that optimizes hard-acceleration launches for quicker, more consistent performance
Twenty-inch polished aluminum wheels and performance tires
Head-up instrument display
Center console with auxiliary gauge package.
Along with the 2SS equipment, the cars feature the RS package, which includes high-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps and unique taillamps.

The Camaro Convertible delivers coupe-like driving dynamics with the fun of open-air driving. The Convertible model’s enhanced structure is designed to eliminate the traditional compromises of open cars, such as cowl or steering wheel shake. The goal is a convertible that drives like the coupe. All the powertrain and suspension elements of the existing Camaro Coupe carry over unchanged in the convertible. The top has a smooth, tailored fit, with acoustical foam in the headliner that helps deliver a quiet ride with the top up.
Four strategic reinforcements enhance the already-stiff body structure to eliminate cowl and steering wheel shake. They include:
The power-folding top retracts in about 20 seconds. It is built in partnership with the same manufacturer as the Corvette convertible top, and operates in a similar manner. It folds in a simple “Z” pattern and latches with a single, convenient handle located at the center of the windshield header. Other convertible models in this segment still offer convertible tops with dual latches, forcing drivers into two-hand operations reaching across the car.
The regular-production versions of the 2011 Camaro Convertible begin arriving in Chevrolet dealerships this month, opening a new chapter in the Camaro’s ongoing 21st-century rebirth. Even before the introduction of a convertible model, Camaro was the sales leader in its class in the United States in 2010 – for the first time since 1985.
Chevrolet’s pace car heritage
Louis Chevrolet, who founded the brand with William “Billy” Durant in 1911, was a racer, mechanic and pioneering engineer. He raced in the early years of the Indianapolis 500, which also started in 1911, and was a luminary of the event in the years after he retired his racing helmet. That included driving the official Indianapolis pace car, which was developed by Indy 500 founder Carl Fisher, who believed a rolling start was safer than a standing start. The first Indianapolis 500 featured a pace car driven by Fisher.
The first Chevrolet selected as the Indianapolis 500 pace car was the 1948 Fleetmaster Six. The brand would go on to lead the racing pack more than any other manufacturer. The list of Chevy pace cars includes:
