By Mike Sulka

First one, 18th one. Simon Pagenaud and his No. 22 Team Penske Chevrolet has won the 2019 Indianapolis 500 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. For Pagenaud, it is his second win of the season, second consecutive victory, and 13th of his IndyCar career. It is his first Indianapolis 500 victory. He is the second driver to sweep the Indianapolis GP, and Indianapolis 500. Rossi is the first Pole winner to win the 500 since Helio Castroneves did it in 2009.

For Team Penske, it is the legendary team's 18th Indianapolis 500. It is the team's 206th all-time victory.

Alexander Rossi and his No. 27 Andretti Autosport Honda would give it a go, but come up just short - two tenths. For Rossi, it is his second podium of the year, and 14th of his career.

For Takuma Sato, it is his second podium of the season, and 10th of his IndyCar career.

Recap

Under cloudy skies and with a threat of rain, Simon Pagenaud and his No. 22 Team Penske Chevrolet would lead the field to the green flag. Ed Carpenter (Ed Carpenter Racing), Will Power (Team Penske), Spencer Pigot (Ed Carpenter Racing) and Josef Newgarden (Team Penske) would follow. Power and Newgarden would each make up three positions at the start.

The first yellow of the day was brought out by Colton Herta (Harding Steinbrenner Racing) following a loss of gearbox pressure. His race would end at the side of the track.

The green flag would fly on Lap 9, Pagenaud would lead with Power, Carpenter, Pigot and Newgarden following. The race would stabalize while drivers focused on hitting their fuel windows.

Pagenaud would be the first of the leaders to pit on Lap 34 and with the early stop he would slid back to 32nd. Power would pit the next time by as would many other cars. Ed Carpenter would take the lead and stop on his next lap. James Davison would get spun around on pit road after being pummeled by Helio Castroneves from behind. Both drivers would continue. Castroneves would be handed a drive-through penalty following the incident.

Following most of the pitstops Felix Rosenqvist would lead through Lap 43 due to pitting during the earlier yellow. On Lap 44, Pagenaud would re-take the lead. Power, Carpenter, Newgarden, and Bourdais would complete the top-five.

Once again, Pagenaud would be the first of the leaders to pit. This time on Lap 67. Carpenter would lead and then pit on the next lap. Power would then do like-wise. Unfortunately, Power would slide through his pit box and hit a crew member, and lose time on his stop. Alexander Rossi would lead Lap 69, and then pit. Jordan King would miss a proper entry into his pitbox, and hit one of his crewmen.

The Chevrolet's would seemingly be burning more fuel than the Honda drivers.

Following the second round of pitstops. Pagenaud would lead wih Felix Rosenqvist, Carpenter, Newgarden and Rossi behind. On Lap 74 Kyle Kaiser would lose his No. 32 on the high side of Turn One, and crash into Turn Two. The result, the second yellow of the day. Rosenqvist would finally stop and drop back to 11th.

During the yellow, Power would be handed a penalty for his pitroad incident. King would also be handed a drive-through for hitting team personnel.

Pagnaud would lead the field when the green flag racing resumed on Lap 81. Carpenter, Newgarden, Rossi, and Bourdais would follow. The orderly procession would continue through Lap 99 as the drivers sought to save fuel. Pagenaud would once again pit early. Carpenter would take the lead and pit on Lap 101. Newgarden would take the lead, and stop on the next lap. Rossi would take the lead, and finally stop on Lap 106.

Dixon and four other cars would continue. The trailing cars would stop with Dixon finally stopping on Lap 111.

Pagenaud would take the lead on Lap 113. Rossi would get racey, while Carpenter, Newgarden, and Bourdais kept up their pace.

Pagenaud would stop again on Lap 130 while Rossi would take the lead. Carpenter would pit from second and hit his pit window - Lap 134. Newgarden would stop on Lap 135. Then Bourdais on Lap 136, and Rossi would finally stop on Lap 137. Rossi would then pound his steering wheel in frustration as his team struggled to put fuel in his IndyCar. For some reason, the fuel would not flow into his IndyCar.

Marcus Ericsson would bring out the third caution of the day with a spin on pitroad. Helping Rossi a bit. Dixon would take the lead under yellow, but he and six other cars would need a fuel stop with 57 laps to go. With the pitstops, Pagenaud would re-take the point followed by Carpenter, Newgarden, Bourdais and Rossi.

Pagenaud would lead the field under green on Lap 148. Newgarden would move up from third on Lap 151 and take the lead from Pagenaud. Behind, Rossi would fall back to seventh, but his charge would begin. Rossi would be back up to fourth by Lap 163.

On Lap 168, Pagenaud would re-take the lead and then pit. Rossi would stop on the next lap, and his fuel stop would go smooth. Bourdais would make his final stop the next time by, and Newgarden would stop from the lead on lap 171. Carpenter would stop from the lead on Lap 172.

Once the final stops were completed, Pagenaud would re-assert himself as the leader. Rossi would be second on track with Carpenter and Newgarden set to pounce.

Rossi would take the lead from Pagenaud on Lap 177, just seconds before the fifth yellow which caught up Graham Rahal, Sebastien Bourdais, Charlie Kimball, Felix Rosenqvist and Zach Veach. Bourdais and Rahal were fighting over track space and both would lose. Ryan Hunter-Reay would just miss Kimball.

The race would be red flagged to clean up the debris - Lap 180. The last red flag was in 2017 when an incident between Scott Dixon and Jay Howard resulted in a lengthy clean-up.

After the 18 minute delay, the IndyCars returned to the track. Pigot would hold the lead, but hadn't pitted recently. Rossi, Pagenaud, Carpenter, and Newgarden would slot in behind. Pigot would pit as soon as the pits would open. Rossi leads.

Racing would resume on Lap 184, and wow what a finish!

Pagenaud and Rossi would trade the lead with each trying to figure out the way to have the advantage at the finish. Rossi would take the lead with three laps to go. Pagenaud would hold off on a late pass on Lap 198, and then pull about on the last lap.

Congratulations to Simon Pagenaud and Team Penske winners of the 2019 Indianapolis 500.

Next up, the annual visit to Detroit for the Dual.

2019 Indianapolis 500: IndyCar Carb Day Practice Results - Kanaan Fastest!

The final practice for the 103rd Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge gave the 33 drivers and teams a last chance to dial in their cars for race. Afterward, some felt better prepared for Sunday's "Greatest Spectacle in Racing," while others aren't so sure.

Tony Kanaan, the 22-year Indy car veteran and 2013 Indianapolis 500 winner, posted the fastest lap of the Miller Lite Carb Day session Friday at 225.517 mph in the No. 14 ABC Supply AJ Foyt Racing Chevrolet. While admitting the lap came with the aid of a tow from cars in front of him, Kanaan was pleased with the steps forward his car has taken since Monday's practice.

"A good day for us," Kanaan said. "Obviously, conditions look like pretty similar to what we're going to see on Sunday, hopefully. It was a pretty easy day for us.

"I wasn't really happy with my car on Monday and I was extremely vocal about it, and I think my engineers heard me, so we made it better today."

Kanaan will make his 18th Indy 500 start on Sunday, this time from the inside of Row 6. He focused on tweaking his car to run strong in traffic on Friday since he knows he'll be in the thick of it during the race.

"I was really working on my car, the level of downforce and grip that I wanted to have starting 16th," Kanaan explained. "So, really, we worked in traffic a lot and trying to find the grip and scan to some of the items that we had on the list to be able to - once we put ourselves in the front during the race - to know what to do."

Rookie Santino Ferrucci was second fastest in the practice, turning a lap of 225.486 mph in the No. 19 Cly-Del Manufacturing Honda for Dale Coyne Racing. Takuma Sato, the 2017 Indy 500 champion, was third in the No. 30 Mi-Jack/Panasonic Honda for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing.

"We were having fun," Ferrucci said. "The No. 19 Cly-Del Manufacturing Honda is in really good shape. We could pass about everybody and we're quick, so there isn't much else to say really. We're looking forward to the race."

Pole sitter Simon Pagenaud ranked 22nd on the speed chart Friday at 222.856 mph in the No. 22 Menards Team Penske Chevrolet. Teammate Will Power, the reigning race winner, was 10th at 224.240 mph in the No. 12 Verizon 5G Team Penske Chevrolet.

Points leader Josef Newgarden was 13th fastest in the No. 2 Shell V-Power Nitro Plus Team Penske Chevrolet. He holds a six-point lead heading into the race over reigning NTT IndyCar Series champion Scott Dixon, who wasn't pleased with how his No. 9 PNC Bank Chip Ganassi Racing Honda handled on Friday.

"I don't know what happened there with the PNC Bank car, honestly," said Dixon, who was 19th on the speed chart and starts the race 18th. "I hope we find something wrong with the car because it wasn't great. It's really bizarre, and nothing like we had all month, so we are unsure.

"There is a fundamental issue on the car and we'll work to find out what happened there."

A total of 1,755 laps were completed on the 2.5-mile oval in the practice scheduled for 90 minutes shortened 18 minutes to allow the track to dry following morning rain.

The 33 entries are now parked in their Gasoline Alley garages until Sunday's 200-lap race. Live coverage begins at 11 a.m. ET on NBC and the Advance Auto Parts INDYCAR Radio Network. The green flag is expected at 12:45 p.m.

2019 Indianapolis 500: IndyCar Carb Day - Driver Quotes


JOSEF NEWGARDEN (No. 2 Shell V-Power Nitro Plus Team Penske Chevrolet): "The final practice went OK. I think the car is in the window. We just need to make sure that we get it right on race day. It's nice to get some laps. We did some pit stops. The guys looked really good. It's time for the race."

HELIO CASTRONEVES (No. 3 Pennzoil Team Penske Chevrolet): "We collected a lot of data and understood some bad things and we learned some good things in case we need to use the data during the race. It was a little tough in traffic. I'd be running 230 miles an hour and come up behind someone doing 190. It's a little unrealistic, to be honest I do believe that we learned some things that will be useful during the race."

2019 Indianapolis 500: Dryer & Reinbold IndyCar Press Conference


DRYER AND REINBOLD RACING CHEVROLET DRIVERS PARTICIPATED IN INDY 500 MEDIA DAY. SELECTED QUOTES FROM EACH DRIVER:

JR Hildebrand, No. 48 DRR Salesforce Chevrolet, met with members of the media at Indianapolis Motor Speedway to discuss the May 26 race and other topics. Selected quotes:

WILL CARB DAY, WHICH MIGHT HAVE THE SIMILAR WEATHER CONDITIONS OF SUNDAY, PART AN IMPORTANT PART IN YOUR PREPARATION?
“For sure. It’s called Carb Day, which seems kind of outdated just from the perspective that it’s carburation day, and in a weird day we’re coming at it with the same general rationale, which is we want to be able to drive the cars in as close to race day weather conditions to tune the aero on the car. So it’s kind of turned from tuning an engine to tuning the aerodynamics. Assuming that tomorrow is similar to race day conditions, I think we’ll learn a lot about what will be the most significant challenges on race day for passing and running in traffic. Hopefully, we can adapt quickly enough during the day to make the car better and be a little more prepared heading into Sunday.”

Pippa Mann, No. 39 Driven2SaveLives Clauson-Marshall Racing Chevrolet, met with members of the media at Indianapolis Motor Speedway to discuss the May 26 race and other topics. Selected quotes:
WHAT HAS BEEN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LAST YEAR AND THIS YEAR?
“The car was sitting in the garage with a Chevy Bowtie engine in the back and was ready to roll out. If we would have been allowed, as we normally are, to roll out and do the install check at 11 a.m. before the veterans’ refresher at 1, we were ready to do that. Last year, trying to turn the car around after the GP of Indy we barely made it out there in time before the end of the veteran refresher session full stop. Last year our car was very good in traffic, but unfortunately when we tried to trim it out, for several reasons why, it didn’t pan out. This year, we were cognizant of the fact that we don’t care what the overall time sheet says every day. We have no interest in a big tow. We’re going to be real smart and go about our business and I think when you pull up the no-tow timesheets of every day, that’s exactly what we did.”

IndyCar, Red Bull Advanced Technologies Partner On Driver Cockpit Protection Innovation Set To Debut In 2020 Ntt IndyCar Series Season


INDYCAR has formed a partnership with Red Bull Advanced Technologies to design an Aeroscreen for enhanced driver cockpit protection that will be implemented for the outset of the 2020 NTT IndyCar Series season, the two organizations announced in a joint news conference at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The Aeroscreen is being developed by Red Bull Advanced Technologies to reduce the risk of driver injury from debris or other objects striking the cockpit area. The driver safety innovation that will encompass the cockpit consists of a ballistic Aeroscreen anchored by titanium framework.

"Since the first prototypes were developed and demonstrated in 2016, the potential of Aeroscreen to improve the safety for drivers in the event of frontal impacts in the cockpit area of cars has been clear," said Christian Horner, Red Bull Advanced Technologies CEO and Red Bull Racing team principal. "This new partnership with INDYCAR gives us at Red Bull Advanced Technologies the go-ahead to fully explore that potential, and to deliver a protection system that will help prevent serious injuries and potentially save lives in the U.S.’ premier single-seater series. Over the coming months, we’ll be working closely with INDYCAR and its drivers to refine and perfect Aeroscreen, and we’re looking forward to seeing the results race in 2020."

WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNED IN THE YEARS YOU’VE BEEN COMPETING IN THE 500?
“Back then, I don’t think I understood the magnitude of this place. I know how big it was racing the Freedom 100 in the Indy Lights championship at that time and seeing how big Carb Day was and then coming on race and realizing how many people came. But my rookie year, all the tradition, all the pomp, all the circumstance, the pieces that go into the whole month, the stress of qualifying, the chaos of Carb Day, the traditions of the parade on Saturday and then race day itself – starting early with the cannon going off. Now it just means more than ever. I think it was Tony Kanaan in his victory celebration banquet speech a few years ago, he said a lot of times you do something, and you check that box. He at the Indy 500 you do it and it just gets further and further into your soul and you just want to do it again and again and again. It’s so true. Each and every time I come to this place it means more than the year before.”
