This Is How Crazy Close The Indy 500 Finish Was

Okay, so the incredibly exciting finish of the Indy 500 was helped a bit by the fact that there was a red flag with less than ten laps to go, but I don't think that made it any less crazy. Do you really think you could hold onto the lead with Helio Castroneves breathing down your neck like this?

A few feet was all that separated winner Ryan Hunter-Reay from 2nd-place finisher Castroneves after 500 miles. It's not one of the greatest races on Earth for no reason.
