History in the Making
The Indianapolis 500, billed as The Greatest Spectacle in Racing, is one of the most prestigious races in motorsports (part of the Triple Crown of Motorsport, along with the Monaco Grand Prix and the 24 Hours of Le Mans). Each year, the top 33 IndyCar drivers from around the world converge on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway—known simply as the “Brickyard”—to compete for the checkered flag.
Lapping the Field
Starting third and trailing for most of the race, RLL’s #30, Takuma Sato, lived up to his motto, “No Attack, No Chance,” during the homestretch. He swept into the lead on lap 185 and then fended off a stiff challenge from 2008 champion Scott Dixon to celebrate in Victory Lane. Sato joins an elite class of only 20 racers to have won the Indy 500 multiple times, his first coming in 2017.
