BREAKING: Helio Castroneves Wins Indy 500 for the Fourth Time 1

Brazilian auto racer Helio Castroneves made history after winning his fourth Indianapolis 500 race on Sunday. He is now one of four drivers to win “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” four times.

Castroneves, who took the checkered flag in 2001, 2002 and 2009, held off runner-up racer Alex Palou, winning by a mere .4928 of a second. Castroneves claimed his first three wins with Team Penske, but Sunday's win was the first Indy 500 win for Meyer Shank Racing.

In a tradition that dates back to 1936, Castroneves slugged back some milk while draped in a laurel of flowers in Victory Lane after the race.
