he could barely contain himself, and his sister, parents and girlfriend were just as emotional. his sister is also his business manager and dealt with his tax evasion court case by his side. to go from almost going to jail to winning the indy 500 for the 3rd time, i can only imagine his emotion. i believe they said it was the first time a foreign competitor has won more than twice? and also i think it is penske's 15th indy 500 win, which is the new record for one team. a very exciting day for the #3 penske team all around!!!
