INDY 500 Unofficial Results

INDIANAPOLIS -RIS- (May 28, 2017)  It was a day of gunfighters at today's Indianapolis 500.

Michael Andretti had six powerful bullets in his firearm. Four of Andretti's six drivers led laps today, dominating the race for Andretti Autosport and Honda. At the 200th lap, the checkered flag fell on Andretti's Takuma Sato - the first Japanese driver to win the Indianapolis 500.

At Ganassi Racing, polesitter Scott Dixon started strong. His perennially popular teammate, Tony Kanaan did well. The third team car, belonging to Charlie Kimball also led the race for several laps. But it was Ganassi's sophomore, England's Max Chilton, who led the day with most laps-led.

Despite engine issues for Andretti's Hunter-Reay and visiting F1 ace, Fernando Alonso, the Honda Performance Development engines took six of the top ten positions on a track where Honda's aerodynamic advantages played a major role.
