INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Tony Kanaan had one more lap, one anticlimactic last lap under the yellow caution flag, to end 12 years of frustration in the Indianapolis 500.
He flipped up his visor to wipe away tears as the crowd roared its approval, and then in Victory Lane gave his bride of two months a long kiss and poured the celebratory winner’s milk over his head.
Kanaan is Indy’s hard-luck loser no more. He is its champion at last, fittingly with a dose of good luck for a change.
