    I came in late to see that Hildebrand is out already. Didn't see what happened.

    He passed Hinch on the high side going into the corner and the tail just snapped around.

    Deja Vu for him from 2011. Just at the beginning this time.

    That wreck in 2011 was just heartbreaking. Last corner, last lap; just needed to coast home...

    What an absolutely crappy end to a great race. Let them run to the checkered instead of the last three laps under yellow. Clean up the mess and put it back to green. Good lord.

    So glad TK got the win. But Indy definitely needs a green/white/checker.

    I can't believe anyone would complain about anything to do with that race.

    68 Lead Changes between 14 different drivers all while setting a record pace. Meaning the field was incredibly close even under long periods of green.

    For instance, just before Graham Rahal spun with 7 to go there had been 3 green flag pit stop cycles and at that moment there were 23 cars on the lead lap and the 18th place car Ana Beatriz at that time trailed the leader by 7.5 seconds. Incredible Incredible racing.

    I just hope Indy Car doesn't mess it up by allowing different aero kits in the future (at least for Ovals) like they talk about doing at times. The Oval racing last yr and now this 500 has been fantastic. I can not wait to see these guys at Pocono later this yr. It will be wild down that long front straight.

    Please Indy Car do not mess with the car it is super. we have arguably had the best street race ever at Brazil earlier in May and now arguably the best 500 ever.

    Where were people complaining about the race? Stating the finish was disappointing due to the final laps under caution is fact.

    Was one of the most competitive Indy 500 races I can recall. But the finish left a lot to be desired.

    any time a great race ends under caution it's like popping the balloon. NASCAR has made plenty of dumb choices, but the green-white checker was one of their best ones. Does Indy racing not use a red flag? Could they not have halted the race and run the last lap under green?


    new signature ideas needed; inquire within

    All over twitter people were complaining about it. So much so that Adam Alexander asked Robin Miller about it on Speed Center this evening.

    PS - Robin Miller's comments were awesome. 1st he said the people on twitter weren't here. Everyone was standing and cheering those final 2 laps. 2nd he said the people that bought tickets paid to see a 500 mile race and that is exactly what they got.
