Dixon: Title No2 is my best

Gordon Kirby – The US Scene

Hélio won, but who watched? There was no stopping Roger Penske’s team and Hélio Castroneves at Indianapolis this year. At the end of the 500 miles Castroneves was in a class of his own as he maintained a comfortable cushion over his snaking line of pursuers to beat 2005 winner Dan Wheldon by a shade under two seconds, a lifetime on a big speedway like Indy. It was Castroneves’s third win at...
