Two-seater ride with National Guard 'team-mate' Dan Wheldon on hold as weather decides againt outing.
Always an emotional individual, Helio Castronevwes had reason for the tears to flow after capturing his third Indianapolis 500 victory.
Even though Dan Wheldon came into the 2005 Indianapolis 500 as the hottest driver on the IRL IndyCar Series tour by a mile, the pressure on him heading into the 2006 running of the 'Greatest Spectacle in Racing' is even greater.
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.
