May 26, 2013 

Tony Kanaan won Sunday's Indianapolis 500 race.

Here's Kanaan's bio from the Associated Press:

Tony Kanaan, 38, Sao Paulo; Chevrolet, KV Racing Technology. Calls Indianapolis a "second home" and says fans have always made him feel like a winner at one of few places he's never won. Trips to Indy have been filled with hard knocks - other than winning 2005 Indy pole. Only driver in Indy history to lead laps in each of first seven starts. Has led 225 laps at Indy, more than any non-winner other than his former boss, Michael Andretti (431), and Rex Mays (266).

Finished 28th, third, second, eighth, fifth, 12th, 29th, 27th, 11th, fourth and third in 11 Indy starts. Streak of eight straight top-six finishes in points ended last year when finished ninth. Won 2004 series title by completing every lap of every race. Season-best finish was fourth in season opener at St. Pete. Was 21st in Brazil, disappointing hometown fans by running out of fuel. Competed and completed Ironman competition in Hawaii in October 2011.
