Gil de Ferran continued Marlboro Team Penske's recent domination of the Indianapolis 500, edging teammate Helio Castroneves by .2990 of a second to win at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
It was de Ferran's first victory in the "Greatest Spectacle in Racing," and it denied Castroneves' chance to become the first driver to win three consecutive Indianapolis 500s.
The potential for an unprecedented addition to the fabled history of the Indianapolis 500 is one of the many highlights of the 87th running of the "Greatest Spectacle in Racing" this year.
Car owner-driver Eddie Cheever Jr. (pictured) won't flash any “EZY” signs from his racecar at new teammate Scott Goodyear late in this year's Indianapolis 500.
That was the sign that owner Lou Moore displayed to rookie Bill Holland, who was leading the Indianapolis 500 in 1947. Holland backed off, allowing teammate Mauri Rose to pass and score his second Indy victory.
