No question about this is an amazing and when you say it would mean to be. -- need to -- From the whole entire month everything that's happened for a reason -- -- wide. But he's who's doing that it answering the question then I'm so glad that some. I just have to thank god all the fans from him he's the they're amazing guys in six during that time. That's -- didn't fluid Hollis describe how would just grind grind grind and that's not a legacy out run out of tears over an hour -- -- -- -- some just. -- Speechless indeed Helio castroneves becomes the ninth driver to win. At least three Indy five hundreds Danica Patrick gets -- Indy career best will power the second pitch he Penske car. In the top five most teams would love to have two drivers in the top seven I would guess -- -- he had -- discipline it would Dixon and Franchitti in sixth and seventh. Paul Tracy great in his return to Indy Indy in Alex tackling out of the top rookie in 09. Now back to the brickyard. A lot of the what was done by the you know the defense that rising National Guard boys in the heads against them in other -- -- on spots every time. Then that is not the -- most costly four or five times for the boys who has got him back in the event such as giving credit. You know -- It's a shame we didn't win then -- -- exactly what I have a hot. Nice -- is again a top three in general. But it's always good at -- -- well I think it's ever so frustrating you know I'm like thinking on that last restart I had a great job. And then. Right from the inside real quick and I yeah I -- not I've got enough women's -- should be fine. This ranks up there -- -- ranks up there I I -- -- Elie Ellis it looked like he was a little less downforce and it was fallen away but you know to be run and in the front of the Indy Indy 500. With the meter inside every driver's dream so I can't anchor of life and big enough money off justices. -- checking finishers twelve through 22 Alex Lloyd finished thirteenth unaware that his pregnant wife -- going to be contractions in the pit lane during the race. No word as to whether reason that yet. Ryan Briscoe wound up fifteenth after that please stop for fuel Sarah Fisher no could do you know seventeenth and twentieth. Mike Conway went from hospital let -- practice to qualify to an eighteenth place finish. What -- had a bumpy start John Andretti. Another these drivers saw the checkered flag TJP's own Oriole Serbia what mechanical issues all the rest as a result of contact. Robin Miller has been working the month of may force here on TSR he joins us now from the speedway and Robin. Roger Penske seems to be so fond of Helio castroneves. Of Walt Rogers fifteen victories at the speedway. And given all that's happened LE EL in the last month is this the biggest win for Penske at the 500. And yeah that that's always asking after the race is over Bobby and he said -- they're all gray can't get this did a standard answer bag -- wide. From going to the courtroom and seeing how this whole thing transpire and see in the month in May that he had. You know we'd like -- and talk about Hinske perfect months that's exactly what this was and you don't halfway through their basic thinking well. It's not going to happen isn't isn't magic -- it's gonna come to a screeching halt. But they all either in the right place they realized their pit stop there are perfect. You know David chart bill Briscoe and get a minute and it kind of beat at the buffer between. LA on the rest of field all smart moves that -- Roger Christie won this race fifteen times. You talk about ten -- perfect that not the case for Chip Ganassi and his bunch Scott Dixon and Dario Franchitti combined to lead. More than half the laps yet neither finishes in the top five what do you make of their day Robin. Well I am you'll hear from a later Adam but I mean they lost the race that pits. Which usually he'll never have those get meciar Penske Andretti green using make up places and bids. Dan did disasters stops that basically diplomatic contention because what you got behind people you thought back they denied he stayed there must thank goodness so hard to pass. But I think halfway through the race where they can weather's going to be -- -- to his swing but it's going to be the target cars is not going to Penske cars and Dixon and and -- looks so strong. And is -- they're thinking this is even think snapped away so quickly you look up the leaderboard and their run and ninth and tenth yet they get how that happened. Well there -- lots of candidates for us surprises let's say Robin Danica Patrick gets her best ever finish how about Townsend bell. In the top five after they don't have basically no time in the car but even Ed Carpenter is a possible surprise. Who do you think was the biggest surprise of this year's 500. Why they had to be bell light you know and me coming back from point fourth I think to to finish fourth. And I -- thing was is that he had very little practice he -- car since last year. The other guy they did a great job -- great teammates SI mean this guy at one time jay Penske car was ahead of all three Rogers newsroom out of fourth. Then at a Terrell pit stop him from fourth at twentieth. But you know guys like Townsend bell and guys like Thomas Schechter and Paul Tracy. These -- the guys we need this series on a weekly basis and that not going to probably see him again got -- walking next week and they will be here. And that's one of the problems -- get any terrorism we gotta have these guys here every week people recognized people can drive race cars and people are fun to watch race. Those just a few of the stories out of today's event much more do you later in the show stick around Robin. Okay guys.
