I'm going to make a bold prediction and say that the winner will not be a Penske or Ganassi car.

In the first 4 races of the season, it has been Andretti Autosport winning 3 races (2 with Hinchcliffe in St. Petersburg and 2 days ago in Sao Paulo, 1 with Hunter-Reay at Barber) and 1 win by Foyt racing (Sato at Long Beach)

at this point the penske team is in my mind considered a dark horse because will power has not had a good run on race day since his 5th back in 2009. Helio is probably the best chance for victory of the three. AJ Allmendinger probably will take it easy but if he is there in the end for a shot at the win then i think he will go for it.

Congratulations to Tony Kanaan on the victory, I would rather have seen it end under green but I understand he was overdue for a win.

wow talk about records being shattered 68 lead changes double than last year 14 different leaders and the fastest 500 by about 2 MPH over the 1990 Indy 500. If the Andretti team had to lose to someone im glad it was Kanaan he did so much over the years taking over after Michael Andretti retired full time in 2003.
