Chaves Rookie Of The Year @ Indy 500


Sunday's Indianapolis 500 is being called one of the best all-around 500's in the event's 99 year history. There were over 600 position changes at the start finish lines, and Gabby Chaves likely accounted for a couple dozen of those.

2015 Indianapolis (Indy 500): IndyCar Post-Race Press Conference - Charlie Kimball, Will Power


THE MODERATOR: Charlie, I saw a couple of people that had you listed as a dark horse for this event. You were up there at the very end still in position to win this darn race. Had to be absolutely thrilling.

CHARLIE KIMBALL: Yeah, it was a blast. The guys worked really hard on the car all month. To be so close to winning the pit stop competition on Friday, then to come close today, I think it makes us all hungrier.

All the guys at Chip Ganassi Racing wanted to give Chip a win for his birthday today, but especially the Novo Nordisk team. We learned a lot from Dario this month. As Graham says, over 500 miles, the car changes all the time. The first couple stints, I couldn't do anything wrong. Could you have put that thing down through the grass and she'd have stuck. In the middle stint, felt like I couldn't do anything right. Kept telling my guys, kept talking to Brad, tell him what the car was doing, asking for what I needed to be there at the end. He kept giving it to me. The last two stints we kept making progress.

I saw Scott racing pretty hard with the Penske boys. I thought that I could be in the catbird seat here if they go three-wide into one and I go in the warmup lane and come out the other side.
Having said that, it was great racing. Scott had to lift for traffic, I wasn't going to lift. I didn't have anything for the Penske boys the last couple laps. A lot of credit to them. They ran strong all day.

2015 Indianapolis (Indy 500): IndyCar Post-Race Press Conference - Juan Pablo Montoya, Roger Penske, Tim Cindric


THE MODERATOR: Happy occasion when you run 1-2. The first practical matter is you're going to have to change your license plate again, Mr. Penske.

ROGER PENSKE: I am. Some race when you think about how we started the month, all the issues, the negative things that came out about the racecars, what have you. I've never been here where I saw 15 laps at the end there where it could have been anybody's race. They raced clean, they passed, so there's something working. Just to see Juan, during the race, coming up, I knew he had a good car. If you know him, he's a fighter. I thought Will had it there. But Ganassi, the 9, seemed to be so easy, it could go by us from time to time. I was waiting for him to stripe us there at the end. He didn't have it at the end because our guys were there together, that helped us. We had two against one. That helped us with the 9. I think it was our day. Last year we missed it by half a car length. That's a credit to the guys. The engines ran well, the aero kits. It was a safe race. The world saw a race that we wanted to see come out of Indianapolis. The greatest spectacle in racing.

2015 Indianapolis (Indy 500): IndyCar Race - Recap


Juan Pablo Montoya won the 99th Running of the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race and held off reigning Verizon IndyCar Series champion and teammate Will Power by 0.1046 of a second - the fourth-closest finish in race history - in a thrilling final 15 laps of the historic race. The victory was Montoya's second Indianapolis 500 win, as the Colombian won "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing" in his first start at the 2.5-mile oval in 2000.

Five of the race's 37 lead changes occurred in the last 15 laps following a restart, when Montoya overtook Dixon in Turn 1 for second place, and then Power in Turn 4 to capture the lead on Lap 197. He held the lead for the remainder of the 200-lap event.

"It was awesome," Montoya said. "This is what racing in INDYCAR is all about, racing down to the wire. These guys, Team Penske, did an amazing job. I had the feeling that I had a really good car, but that fight at the end was really, really hard. All the way down to the wire. This is pretty awesome."

2015 Indianapolis (Indy 500): IndyCar Race - Quotes


WILL POWER (No. 1 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet): "I just had too much push when he got by. I had to lift on that last lap. He was definitely better when he got behind me. That's why he got the run. Anywhere else I'd be happy with second. But here. ... It was a great month overall -- first, first and second, second."

JUAN PABLO MONTOYA (No. 2 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet): "That was an easy race. But this was a lot of work today. I mean, with Simona (de Silvestro) in back of me, that's what happens when you qualify bad. You find yourself with the wrong crowd. We kept adding downforce and adjusting the car. It was fun because after the caution, when I was running like eighth, I could barely keep up with them. I'm like, 'We don't have anything.' As we kept adjusting the car, (I thought) 'Oh, that's a little better, that's a little better.' That's what you got to do, stay on top of the track. What really matters is the last 15 laps. That was fun racing. Probably the best racing. Between Will (Power) and (Scott) Dixon, we have a lot of respect for each other. We understand the risk and we understand when they got you. So it makes it fun."

2015 Indianapolis (Indy 500) Q&A: IndyCar Race - Jeff Gordon


JEFF GORDON, OFFICIAL PACE CAR DRIVER FOR THE 99TH RUNNING OF THE INDIANAPOLIS 500, met with members of the media prior to leading the field to the green flag. Below is the press conference transcript:

THE MODERATOR: Chevrolet has a long history at this track, dating back to 1911 when a guy named Louis Chevrolet raced a race here. Chevrolet also has a long history of pacing races here, 26 times dating back to 1948. The Corvette Z06 which will be the pace car for this year's race, is the 13th Corvette to pace the field here.

More than up to the task, its LT4 supercharged V8 engine produces 650 horsepower.

Our pace car driver, too, is more than up to the task. He has five Brickyard 400 victories here, including one in the first stockcar race ever held on these grounds, four NASCAR championships, 92 victories, Jeff Gordon.

Jeff, welcome to Indianapolis.

On a partly cloudy day in front of 250,000, IndyCar driver Juan Pablo Montoya has won the 99th Indianapolis 500 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis, Indiana. For Montoya, it is his second win of the 2015 IndyCar season, and fourth of his IndyCar career - 14 major open-wheel wins overall. It is his second win at Indianapolis already has his face on the infamous 110 lb Borg Warner Trophy. Montoya's last win at the Indianapolis 500 was in 2001.

It was the 16th Indianapolis 500 win for Roger Penske and his team.

In 2015, the IndyCar series has had five different winners in six races.

Before Montoya's win, Honda has won every Indianapolis 500 since 2004 - except 2013 year when Tony Kanaan picked up the win for Chevrolet.

Will Power and his No. 1 Chevrolet would finish second to pick up his third podium of the 2015 IndyCar season, and 42nd in IndyCar competition, and 48 overall.

Charlie Kimball would pick up the final step on the podium.

Polesitter Scott Dixon looked strong all day, but couldn't keep up with the Penske teammates over the closing laps as his front wouldn't hang on.

Graham Rahal finished fifth followed by Marco Andretti, Helio Castroneves, JR Hildebrand, Josef Newgarden and Simon Pagenaud.

It was a wild run to the finish as Scott Dixon, Will Power and Montoya traded the lead over the final 14 laps. Montoya made his move with three laps to go, and it appeared it might have been too soon. In the end, Power couldn't track him down to make a legitimate pass attempt as they came to the checkers.

The race started a bit rough as Sage Karam ended up in the wall after going three-wide on Lap One with former Formula One F1 driver Takuma Sato. Karam was clearly unhappy with the Japanese drivers move.

During the yellow Juan Pablo Montoya was rear-ended by Simona de Silvestro damaging his car, and leaving him at the back of the field after repairs. Montoya would work his way back up to the front by the mid-point of the race.

Bryan Clauson's 2015 Indianapolis 500 came to an early end on Lap 64 after his No. 88 slid up and hit the Turn Four wall. He walked away from the accident.

Caution three was brought out on Lap 112 for a Turn One two-car incident between Ed Carpenter No. 20 Chevrolet and Oriol Servia and No. 32 Honda. It was the second hard crash in a week for Carpenter whose crashed last Sunday resulted in major aero changes for qualifying.

While under the third caution, the three Dale Coyne cars of James Davison, Tristan Vautier, and Pippa Mann had a incident on pitlane. One crew member was taken away by ambulance and later sent to the local hospital after being sandwiched between the Davison car and Vautier car which was being serviced. Davison had been released from his pit box, collided with Pippa Mann, and then hit the Vautier IndyCar. The speed on pitlane is 60 MPH.

On Lap 152, Tony Kannan and his No. 10 Chevrolet ended the day in the wall just after exiting pitlane. Kanaan lost the rear of the car exiting Turn Three, spun around and slid down to Turn Four. Kanaan would exit the car on is own power. The Brazilian had led earlier in the race and appeared to be a solid contender for the win.

Exiting Turn Four on lap 176, Jack Hawksworth lost the rear of his car and collected Sebastian Saavedra who then collected Stefan Coletti. While Hawksworth and Coletti were able to exit their cars on their own power, the IndyCar safety team took extra time with removing Saavedra from his car.

Overall, there were six caution periods, for 47 laps of yellow. The average speed of the race was 161.341 Mph.

An accident on Lap 1 of the Indianapolis 500 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis, Indiana has brought out an early full course caution. Involved in the incident were Sage Karam and his No. 8 Chevrolet, and Conor Daly and his No. 43 Honda. Both young drivers are favorites hoping to complete laps at the Speedway. Both drivers walked away from the accident.

Karam clearly called out Takuma Sato - former Formula One F1 driver - for making it a three-wide situation. "The guy needs to wake up a little bit."

This was the first caution of the the day.

By Mike Sulka

Round six of the 2015 Indycar season is the 99th Indianapolis 500 Mile Race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis, Indiana. The four cornered oval is the only 2.5-mile oval on the IndyCar circuit, its turns banked at 9 degrees. The straights have no banking to speak of and are an equal 3,330 feet on the frontstretch and the backstretch. If all the seats are full, the facilities can hold over 255,000 fans. If the weather is nice, tens of thousands more fans can take their place on the infield viewing mounds.

As for the drivers, here is an amazing stat: Only five of the 33 drivers that will race Sunday have ever won the Indianapolis 500 - Helio Castroneves, Scott Dixon, Juan Pablo Montoya, Ryan Hunter-Reay and Tony Kanaan are regulars in the series.

Castroneves is the most successful current IndyCar driver in the 33-car field having won three Indy 500s (2001 & 2002 & 2009), this year he'll start fifth. But guess where two of his three Indy 500 wins have started ? That's right - 10th or worse. In 2001, the Brazilian - racing for Team Penske -started 11th, and in 2002 he started 13th. His other victory, came from the Pole position in 2009.

Where might the winner come from at the brickyard if Castroneves doesn't take a legend-making fourth win ?

The five of the last nine Indianapolis 500 races have been won from the front row, and three of those nine (and four of the last eleven) have been won by the Pole-sitter which should give Polesitter Scott Dixon - who put up a 226.760 4-lap average - a chance to smile.

Where you don't want to qualify is second quick.

The last driver to win after qualifying in the middle of the front row was former Formula One and NASCAR driver Juan Pablo Montoya in 2000. You'll have to look hard for the next most recent victor from second on the grid which was Mario Andretti way back in 1969. Qualifying second isn't just the first loser at Indianapolis on Pole Day, it is also a bad omen for race day.

Sorry, Will Power.

Third on the starting grid however, is almost as good as a Pole. Since Andretti's win in '69, 18 Polesitters have won the legendary race, while ten of those starting third have won. Stated another way, 28 of the last 47 Indianapolis 500s have been won from those two starting positions.

That might mean good news is in the offing for Simon Pagenaud who starts third for the Team Penske IndyCar team.

And here is one more stat for you, Honda has won every Indianapolis 500 since 2004 - except 2013 year when Kanaan brought his Chevrolet in for the win.

Will Honda be back this year, after Chevrolet has been so dominate so far this season ?

As for our pick , we are going to go with Helio Castroneves to take his fourth Indianapolis 500 victory... finally. He's been waiting for win number four for the last six years and was so close last year.

Should Castroneves fail, there are a host of talented drivers behind, and any driver in the top-ten qualifiers could turn a long race into victory given the right circumstances.

Enjoy the second race of the day - following the 2015 Formula One F1 Monaco Grand Prix - as the Memorial Day festivities continue! The IndyCar series is an exciting series to watch!
