Kanaan earned nearly $2.4 million at Indy 500
Question of the Day
Then, he looked over at his friend.
“My man here, they got it right. You did a great job.”
It was a steep drop in earnings for the second-place finisher, but 21-year-old Colombian rookie Carlos Munoz wasn’t complaining about $964,205.
“Whoa,” he said. “That’s a lot of money.”
Munoz said he was surprised to perform so well.
“Being a rookie, I didn’t expect to be that quick. It was an awesome car the whole race.”
Third-place finisher Ryan Hunter-Reay, the defending IndyCar champion, earned $583,005.
Marco Andretti, who took over the series points lead, was fourth with $469,755. He said Andretti Autosport was solid all day, but simply didn’t have enough for Kanaan.
“A few of us on our team executed perfectly,” Andretti said. “We still got beat, so that tells you how good these guys were.”
Justin Wilson finished fifth and earned $337,805. Helio Castroneves, who finished sixth, earned $313,755.
The mood was celebratory throughout the evening.
“Drivers are usually unhappy when they don’t win, but you made a lot of people happy,” Oriol Servia told Kanaan.
