Chevrolet was the superior of the two engine manufactures on Sunday. The bowtie was well represented at the front with the top four cars all Chevy powered machines. Chevrolet had seven cars in the top ten. Honda’s top finishing driver was Justin Wilson in fifth place.
Other records broken Sunday include 133 consecutive green flag laps, the longest green-flag period in 500 history since caution-flag laps were recorded in 1976. The 21 caution-flag laps are the fewest in an Indianapolis 500 that went the full distance.
