Indianapolis 500



Dan Wheldon of Great Britain won the Indianapolis 500 last weekend. This is the second time he has won. Rookie J.R. Hilldebrand was so close to winning until he wiped out on the last turn.


This is a picture of the winner from 1916! This car reached a top speed of 79 miles per hour!

Did you know that the cars in the Indy 500 run on ethanol instead of gasoline, the winner of the race drinks a bottle of milk, and this year was the 100th race?

Did you watch the Indianapolis 500 this year?
