Race Summary: Castroneves' sixth pole of the season tied Billy Boat's record for most poles in a season, set in 1998. On the first lap, Andretti Green teammates Danica Patrick, Tony Kanaan, and Marco Andretti tangled, resulting in Andretti's car flipping over Kanaan's rear tire and landing upside-down. Andretti was uninjured. On the final fuel stop, Scott Dixon's Chip Ganassi Racing crew was able to short-fill and get him out ahead of rivals Castroneves and Dario Franchitti. This was Dixon's third win in a row, tying Kenny Bräck (1998) and Dan Wheldon (2005) for the longest win streak in league history. (Wikipedia)
