    It was an Indy 500 like no other as the record for lead changes was doubled from the previous record of 34 to a whopping 68 lead changes on Sunday. Kanaan set a new record winning speed at 187.433 mph, breaking the previous mark of 185.981 set by Arie Luyendyk in 1990. Luyendyk held the record winning speed for the longest period in race history, 23 years.

    “Trust me, he is feeling relief right now,” Franchitti said of Kanaan. “He is amazed this has happened right now and I am delighted for him. If they put him on one side of the trophy and me on the other they could use our noses as handles to lift it up." :grin:
