The Indy 500 ended on a happy note, but......
But we were inches away from a double death
Despite one scary accident and several smaller ones, the 2017 Indy 500 ended on a positive note with Japanese driver Takuma Sato outdueling Helio Castroneves for the race win as a crowd estimated at 300,000 stood and cheered. However, the IndyCar series was inches from being faced with the death of two drivers in a single accident, all because they are not smart enough to engineer a canopy solution to the cockpits to protect the drivers heads.

Some races go to the swift, others to the strong; but once in a while, it goes to the bold. No one ever accused Takuma Sato of not being bold when it comes to winning the Indy 500 – witness his dog fight in 2012 with Dario Franchitti. Today, that boldness paid off.
