Takuma Sato wins the Indy 500

I hope this is in the right forum...

Forty-year-old Takuma Sato became the first Japanese driver to win the Indianapolis 500 today, passing three-time winner Helio Castroneves with just three laps to go.

It was a phenomenal race. Englishman Max Chilton led most of the closing laps, but then Sato and Castroneves both got around him and dueled to the finish.

Sato previously came close to winning five years ago, when he tried a daring pass on eventual winner Dario Franchitti and crashed on the last lap. You could say the Speedway owed him one.

If anyone out there finds something from Japanese TV on the race posted, can you point it out to me? Thanks!
