Helio Castroneves graciously accepted congratulations from Rick Mears for a tremendous run in the Indianapolis 500, a second-place finish in the second-closest race in history.
Pennzoil will return its iconic "Yellow Submarine" paint scheme to the Indianapolis 500 this month with three-time winner Helio Castroneves.
Traditionalists balked and some were downright outraged at the mere suggestion stock cars dare set their fenders on the sacred ground of Indianapolis.
AJ Allmendinger's parents attended their first Indianapolis 500 in 1979, when they camped in a grassy lot and watched Rick Mears win his first 500.
IndyCar drivers won't have to wait long for their next race. After racing at Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday night, they will take a break and then do it again.
"Rick Mears and I were talking once. He said `If you think you belong in the company of your heroes, there's something wrong with you,'" Franchitti said. "I can't argue with that.
