  1. I truly appreciate your efforts today. This was a THRILLING, EXCITING race from start to finish. Great drama. Didn't know who was going to win for sure even on the last lap. I was on the edge of my seat for the last 25 laps, heart a-pounding!

    To be able to see the race live for the first time ever on www.indycar.com was very special for me. The onboard race cams on the cars of Dario Franchitti, Danica Patrick, Helio Castroneves, and Tony Kanaan were just plain exciting. When they came flying into the pits and stopped inches from their pit crews, I almost threw up the first time I watched. This is as close as the average person will ever get to experiencing what it feels like to race at Indy. So I congratulate www.indycar.com on a GREAT, GREAT show.

    How about Tony Kanaan working himself all the way up to 2nd place during the race? That's some GREAT racing right there. Made it very exciting for the viewers, I think. And Danica finished 5th in the unofficial results, after not doing all that much throughout the race.

    We'll have to see if the unofficial results that you posted will stand. Marco Andretti was complaining after the race that three cars passed him under yellow on the final lap, so he feels that he should finish 3rd instead of 6th.

    No matter what the official results are when posted on Monday, all I can say is that they put on one heck of a show today.
