Its a real shame that all that great racing is p*ssed away by finishing the race under caution. Nothing more exciting than watching the biggest race there is putt it's way to a finish with three laps of caution. So disappointing. The end of that race could have been one of the best of all time but whatever. Nice to see TK win but was pulling for the Dinger.

Great race, terrible finish. It's a shame to end a race like that under caution. Sure takes all the excitement out of the finish. I don't know anyone who likes seeing a race finish under caution.

Also maybe NO GWC because remember a few years ago there was a caution at the end and they started it and one driver FLIPPED into the catch fence and got hur real bad? I think it was about 3-4 years ago? Maybe that what Indycar is trying to avoid :cheers2:

KANAAN EARNS $2.3 MILLION FOR WINNING 97TH INDIANAPOLIS 500

INDIANAPOLIS, Monday, May 27, 2013 - Tony Kanaan earned $2,353,355 from an overall purse of $12,020,065 for his victory Sunday, May 26 in the 97th Indianapolis 500 Mile Race.

Brazil native Kanaan, who started 12th, set a record winning speed of 187.433 mph, breaking the previous mark of 185.981 set by Arie Luyendyk in 1990. Kanaan won "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing" for the first time in 12 career starts, tying an event record for earning a victory latest in a driver's Indy 500 career. The other driver to win the race for the first time in his 12th career start was Sam Hanks in 1957.

Kanaan, who led the race 15 times for a total of 34 laps in his No. 11 Hydroxycut KV Racing Technology-SH Chevrolet, won the race when he and Carlos Munoz overtook race leader Ryan Hunter-Reay entering Turn 1 on a Lap 198 after a restart. During that restart, three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Dario Franchitti's No. 10 Target Chip Ganassi Racing Honda made contact with the wall between Turns 1 and 2, allowing Kanaan to cruise to the checkered flag under caution.

In the first IZOD IndyCar Series race of his career, Munoz, of Colombia, qualified second and finished second in his No. 26 Unistraw Chevrolet for Andretti Autosport. Munoz was voted the winner of the prestigious Chase Rookie of the Year Award.
Munoz, who owns two Firestone Indy Lights wins this season and finished fourth in the Firestone Freedom 100 on Friday, May 24, earned $964,205, which included a $25,000 bonus from Chase.

Reigning IZOD IndyCar Series champion Hunter-Reay earned $583,005 for driving his No. 1 DHL Chevrolet for Andretti Autosport to a third-place finish in a performance that saw him lead the race 13 times for 26 laps.

In driving his No. 25 RC Cola Chevrolet Chevrolet to a fourth-place finish, Andretti Autosport's Marco Andretti joined Kanaan in leading the race 15 times, the most ever by an Indianapolis 500 driver who did not win the race. Andretti, who led for 31 laps and took the IZOD IndyCar Series points lead, was awarded $469,755.

Justin Wilson drove his No. 19 Dale Coyne Racing Honda to an Indianapolis 500 career-best fifth place after starting 14th. Wilson earned $337,805.

Three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Helio Castroneves earned $313,755 by driving his No. 3 Shell V-Power/Pennzoil Ultra Team Penske Chevrolet to a sixth-place finish. Castroneves led one lap in the race and has led in eight of his 12 career Indianapolis 500 starts for a total of 232 laps.

Pole sitter Ed Carpenter, who led the race six times for a race-high 37 laps in his No. 20 Fuzzy's Vodka Ed Carpenter Racing Chevrolet, finished the 10th Indianapolis 500 of his career in 10th position. He received $405,955, which included $100,000 for earning the Verizon P1 Award as pole winner.

The Indianapolis 500 Mile Race purse consists of Indianapolis Motor Speedway and IZOD IndyCar Series awards, plus other designated and special awards. Purse awards were announced and presented at the Victory Awards Celebration presented by Ice Miller LLP on Monday, May 27 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The 98th Indianapolis 500 is scheduled for Sunday, May 25, 2014. First run in 1911, "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing" is the world's largest single-day sporting event and most prestigious auto race.

It was an awesome finish! The race is 200 laps, no more, no less. Kanaan went for the lead on the last restart and got it knowing that the race could end under caution. Green, white, checkered restarts are okay for NASCAR where you can beat and bang on each other all day long with virtually no consequence, but they're too dangerous for IndyCar. Crash a NASCAR, go have a beer. Crash an IndyCar, go to the morgue... I was there in person as I have been every year for the last eight years and it was the most exciting race/finish I've seen. The drama of TK's last two laps under caution were surreal to see in person. Everyone was waiting for him to run out of fuel or run over debris or to have something stupid take another one away from him and the place erupted when finally took the checkers. Another thing, people usually start filing out with five or ten laps to go to beat the traffic. On Sunday, I hardly saw anybody leaving until Tony was done with his interview and stood to salute him on his victory lap. That should tell you something. Unlike NASCAR, IndyCar doesn't NEED GWC restarts to be exciting...
