The list included three-time victor Helio Castroneves, the retiring Danica Patrick, 2013 race victor Tony Kanaan and four-time series champ Sebastien Bourdais.

Patrick, the only woman to win an IndyCar race and start from pole at the Daytona 500, lost control on lap 68 of the 200-lap race, hitting the wall in Turn 2 then spinning across the track before coming to rest. He also won the IndyCar Grand Prix on May 12 at the same track. And once the Team Penske driver took the checkered flag, he and Liz let it all pour out. While the cause of the wreck remains undetermined, Chip Ganassi Racing's Ed Jones suffered a similar incident just laps before without coming into contact with another auto.

"And then I go on and two pit and I'm like 'Man, I think I'm going to win this!'" The final round of pit stops, starting with 28 laps remaining, was particularly tense, as every drop of fuel gathered or missed could have made the difference between winning and losing. It was her first race back at Indy since 2011 and her second finish outside the top 10.

"He hated ovals and now he loves them", he said.

"Please, Roger, let me go back", Castroneves said after stepping out of his vehicle.

"Unbelievable to be the first Australian to win the 500; maybe they will recognize me down there now", smiled Power.

"I just can't believe it", he said after the race.

"I don't know if fun was the right word; we were trying to take the opportunities that were given to us and execute with that we have". Rossi had no choice: It was hard to pass in the 2018 vehicle on a day that fell just 2 degrees short - it was 91 - of being the hottest 500 in history.

"It was fun until I got to the top five and then it was stressful", Rossi said.

After last season, Penske moved Castroneves from his full-time IndyCar ride to the Penske sports-car Acura team starting this season with the promise of fielding a vehicle for the Indianapolis 500. The popular Brazilian has been chasing Rick Mears, A.J. Foyt and Al Unser Sr.in the record books and even though Penske moved him to sports cars this year, Castroneves was given a seat for Indy.

Facing a jail bond of $10 million, he reportedly paid $1 million in the form of a cashier's check to post bail. Sivan was one of more than 80 women who have accused Weinstein of sexual harassment, assault, and/or rape.

"It's hard to say no to him, isn't it?" said Penske, who already had promised Castroneves a ride for 2019 if he won Sunday.

Patrick was completing the "Danica Double" after wrecking out at the Daytona 500. It just didn't come on race day. It's both of them.

Patrick had returned to Indianapolis to conclude her career at the epicenter of the fame that made it so notable.

Bourdais crashed a year after missing the race because of a harrowing, high-speed accident during qualifying. Kanaan led at least one lap in his 14th Indy 500 to break a record he had shared with four-time race victor A.J. Foyt.
