Race Summary: Sam Hornish, Jr. had built up a sizeable lead by lap 196 when A. J. Foyt IV lost his right rear wheel, causing Sarah Fisher to check up and several contenders including Helio Castroneves, Dan Wheldon, and Scott Dixon to be collected in the resulting melee. After the re-start, Andretti Green teammates Tony Kanaan and Danica Patrick attempted to mount an attack on Hornish but he was able to hold them off to collect his first win of the season. Danica Patrick's resulting 3rd place was the best finish of her career. (Wikipedia)
