May 26 , 2014
Ryan Hunter-Reay won the 98th Indianapolis 500 with a small margin of 0.0600 seconds.
"This is what I've dreamed of since I was a little kid," he said. "This is everything I've worked for." This is also the first time that an American racer has been put in the limelight since 2006.
Team owner Michael Andretti gave the driver a pep talk while he sat in his vehicle during the red flag. "You're the best driver out there. Just go win it," he said. Hunter-Reay mentioned that the engineer said something similar as well. "You've got the tools. Let's go make it happen."
