How Big Is Tony Kaaan's Comeback?

If Tony Kanaan in the #11 car can win this race, it will be the biggest comeback in Indianapolis 500 history. No one has won from 33rd place.

The closest anyone has come is in 1980 when Tom Sneva moved from 33rd to 2nd place. In that same year, Gary Bettenhausen moved from 32nd to 3rd place, after spending all night rebuilding his fuel system with his crew chief.

We'll see if Tony can repeat history, or even make it.
