Great Indy 500 Race

Today was the grnddaddy of motor sports as Formula 1, the Indy Cars and NASCAR all put on their biggest races (exception maybe the Daytona 600, but I digress).

The Indy 500, as usual, was the most exciting race as Ryan Hunter Reay beat Helio Castroneves by .06 seconds.
The race was exciting from about 20 laps on down as there were a couple of accidents involving heavy racing and then several lead changes.
Kurt Busch, mostly of NASCAR finished 6th in his first Indy Car race but bombed out in the Coca Cola 600 where he blew an engine and finished 40th.
Speaking of bombing out, all the buzz in NASCAR this past week was about Danica Patrick having a good race in Kansas and then qualified 4th for this race.  Well, she bombed as well, finishing in 39th place, her usual finishing result.
In Formula 1, Nico Rosberg defeated Lewis Hamilton, but it is Formula 1, so who cares.
