Good morning, everyone. Let's welcome the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil, Alexander Rossi, back here in the Economaki Press Conference Room.

A lot of pictures. It was the most pictures I've ever taken in my entire life. No, I think when I pulled into victory lane, I was blown away with the fact that I had won, but I had no idea, even remotely, what was then around the corner from that. It's just been -- this entire month has been something that I'm blown away every single day, and that hasn't ceased to stop. I'm enjoying it and just trying to embrace it as much as I can, all the while appreciate what happened yesterday.

Rookie Alexander Rossi wins 100th Indy 500
by Tim Wohlford
In the best Indy 500 ever, Alexander Rossi turned the fastest race lap (225.288 mph) and then nursed his car to the start-finish line on fumes to win the 2016 Indy 500. His car didn’t even make it back to pit road, having run out of gas before he crossed the Yard of Bricks. Teammate Carlos Munoz finished second, and Josef Newgarden finished third. But the big story was Rossi who started his career with an eye on F1, ran out of money, and switched to IndyCar only to win the biggest race in the world on his first try.

by Mark J. Cipolloni
In a race that started wet and interrupted by several altercations, the Mercedes team only pitted Lewis Hamilton once from wets to ultrasoft tires and Hamilton did all the rest to keep polesitter Daniel Riccardo behind him and win his 2nd GP of Monaco. Force India's Sergio Perez held off the Ferrari of Sebastian Vettel for 4th and Fernando Alonso drove a smart race to finish 5th for McLaren-Honda.

by Mark J. Cipolloni
It’s all quiet now at the greatest sports venue in America, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The crews are done tinkering with the cars, the drivers off to bed early and the maintenance crews are doing their final touches – cleaning up the trash from the past two weeks, and putting a shine on the place before the 350,000 adrenaline junkies come flowing through the gates for the 100th time to witness the greatest spectacle in racing, the Indy 500.

by Pete McCole
Denny Hamlin proved that new tires will always trump old tires at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Hamlin rallied from a pit road penalty and took advantage of a late caution flag to come back and pass Joey Logano and Kyle Larson on the second-to-last lap in a three-lap overtime finish for the victory in Saturday’s Hisense 300 NASCAR Xfinity Series race. Austin Dillon finished second, followed by Logano, Cole Custer and Justin Allgaier
Q&A with Indy 500 Pace Car Driver Roger Penske
Winningest team owner in Indy history
Like the Indy 500, Mr. Penske, too, is celebrating a milestone this year. This is his 50th year as a team owner in motorsports. And his list of accomplishments, I could be here all morning, but I think the most pertinent one for this day is that his teams have won this race a record 16 times including a year ago with Juan Pablo Montoya. To pace this year's Indy 500, Mr. Penske will be driving a 2017 Camaro SS, 50th Anniversary Edition. It's the ninth time the a Camaro has paced the field, 27th time for Chevrolet since 1948.
