"It's an unbelievable experience and I still can't believe it, felt like it was a dream when I woke up this morning before my manager called me and told me it was five minutes until my first interview", said Sato Monday evening, just minutes before the Indianapolis 500 banquet. Howard got too far outside and hit the Turn 1 wall. "We hope you will accept our profound apologies". Unfortunately, the Spaniard's Honda powered challenger let go on lap 179 with only 21 laps to go, costing him the race.

"The last few laps, they were the moment". For Andretti Autosport, this marks back-to-back Monday morning victory photo ceremonies, with Alexander Rossi taking the checkered flag past year.

He's now 0 for 8 in his attempt to join A.J. Foyt, Al Unser and Rick Mears as the only four-time Indy 500 winners.

Scott Dixon and Alexander Rossi were first on the scene, then Tony Kanaan, and from there, it was a blur as nearly the entire field of 33 stopped in to pay their respect and show support.

Today, with Indianapolis Motor Speedway's expansive frontstretch as his backdrop, Sato marveled at his accomplishment. "I think we deserved at least to finish the race. who knows what position we could be." said Alonso, who was given a rousing ovation in appreciation of his masterful performance as he exited his vehicle.

The 40-year-old sat on the edge of his vehicle surrounded by his crew and the Andretti Autosport team. But he challenged for the lead much of the day, leading 27 laps before his Honda engine blew after 179 of 200 laps. Dixon and Howard both climbed from their cars. "It's a very nice surprise to come here with big names, big guys, the best in open-wheel racing and be competitive", said Alonso. "I know that I can be as quick as anyone in an F1 vehicle".

Nighttime, early morning bombings in Baghdad kill 27
Speaking on CBS's Face the Nation on Sunday, Mattis said: "Our strategy right now is to accelerate the campaign against Isis". The attacks targeted commercial areas and a patrol of Sunni anti-IS tribal fighters, they said.

"I'm a little beaten up there, it was a bit of a rough ride", said Dixon, a four-time IndyCar series champion. Hunter-Reay led 28 laps and was a strong contender late. "It was a solid start, we were running in the top 10- 11 for most of the first half". "I don't blame Honda at all. I know it's going to happen". He becomes the first Japanese driver to win the race.

With just seven laps to go in the race, Castroneves zipped by Sato on a bold overtaking move, but the Andretti Autosport driver returned the favour just two laps later and maintained the lead from there until the finish line. "Finishing second again sucks".

There was a record 15 different drivers who led the race with a whopping 36 lead changes. Even Franchitti made his way to victory lane to congratulate Sato, who was eager to see the impact of his win at home in Japan.

The Denver Post has cut ties with Terry Frei after the journalist tweeted that he was "very uncomfortable with a Japanese driver winning the Indianapolis 500 during Memorial Day weekend".

While Alonso didn't get a chance to fight for the win, he still took a drink of milk after the race was over.
