Indy 500 winning car wrecks in Race 1
Dan Wheldon, who is broadcasting tonight's races instead of driving in them, won the Indy 500 in the car that Cunninghanm was driving. Cunningham's team -- Sam Schmidt Motorsports -- is using the car that Wheldon used to win the Indy 500.
It was wrecked with 21 laps remaining. We'll see what that means for the second race tonight.
