2019 NTT IndyCar Series: Indy GP race highlights video here

Let's take a look back

The 100th Indianapolis 500 wound down. Alexander Rossi, like Hildebrand a rookie from California, was nursing his car’s low fuel reading and trying to limp home for an upset victory. 2011 was on all of our minds, as those of us on the radio broadcast were consistently asking who was running behind the leader.

As it turns out, Rossi, in car 98, got the win with team owner Bryan Herta. The same Bryan Herta whose other 500 win came with car 98, and Dan Wheldon, in 2011. After Hildebrand hit the wall.

Winner podium

Sato took his shot into Turn 1 on the final lap of the Indy 500 seven years ago but went just a little too high. All’s well that ends well. Franchitti became just the 10th driver with at least three wins, while Sato would get his first five years later.

Even as JR Hildebrand sailed past me with just two turns left, I was afraid to call him the winner. His lead was so big, his fortune so certain, I recall, I hadn’t stopped to think who was running second. I watched on the big screen at what was to happen next. Hildebrand hit the wall in Turn 4. It felt like the world went silent, only to rush back to reality with one person’s words permeating through your delusion. Dan Wheldon takes win.

Ernest Viso's horrible accident

2006: It seemed he’d won it five turns earlier. When Marco Andretti slammed the Turn 3, Lap 199 door on Sam Hornish Jr., it looked like the 19-year-old was about to win, in his first Indy 500, what his father had been denied in 14 previously.  You know the result. Hornish roared past him at the line to take the checkered flag.

Tony Stewart was trying to finish the first half of his daily double, scheduled to run the NASCAR Coca-Cola 600 after completing the 2001 Indy 500. After leading the race, but waiting out a 17-minute delay, Stewart leaped from his car for what was assumed to be a trip to the men’s room. Turns out, he was being treated for leg cramps. Stewart went in to finish sixth.

Penske Ilmor Mercedes-Benz. The Penske drivers dominated the month. They would have finished 1-2, but when defending race winner Emerson Fittipaldi smacked the wall late, Al Unser Jr. finished for the win without his teammate. It was dirty air that pulled Fittipaldi – “the vacuum cleaner,” as Little Al told ABC. It was the only thing all month to reel in the Mercedes.But when did he truly know he had his 1994 win?

“When I crossed the finish line,” Unser said. “You never know about anything at the Indy 500 until the checkered flag. Even on the very last lap, I was praying and praying that the thing stayed running for that last lap.”

Roberto Guerrero had knocked on the door with a second, third and fourth in his first three 500s, and in 1987 looked poised to kick it in. Guerrero pitted on Lap 182, a lap up on the field. Stalled. Restarted. Stalled again. The consolation was that it led to Unser’s historic fourth win.

Al Unser was going for win No. 4. Late in the race, Unser was trying to hold off Tom Sneva. That pesky car in between Sneva and Unser? Al Unser Jr., in his first race, several laps down.That’s where we sat in 1985. Danny Sullivan. Beautiful Miller American March. Passing Mario Andretti. Turn 2. Spin. Straightened. Off again.

1981: Rick Mears wasn’t dancing, he was burning. The methanol fuel burned invisibly in those days, leaving to mystery for a youngster the severity of the matter. Fortunately, Mears and his team survived without life-threatening injuries.
Gordon Smiley led during that caution – the only laps he’d lead in his Indy 500 career – and cars were passed during a later race caution that caused a postrace uproar. Apparently, I wasn’t the only to miss it at the time.

This is Jake Query list of 10 things at the Indianapolis 500 to remember.


But now the question: Which driver will take the 103rd Indianapolis 500 victory in 2019, betting that it would be one of the three drivers pictured above?
