0 0

Oakville's James Hinchcliffe was embarrassed on the track at Sunday's Indy 500.

Hinchcliffe was in 4th position with 25 laps to go.  He tried to pass Ed Carpenter, a move that sent both cars into the wall and ended their race day.

Hometown favourite Carpenter climbed out of the cockpit and yelled at Hinch for making an "amateur move".  Carpenter suggested he would have roughed the Canadian driver up had Hinchcliffe not been recovering from a recent concussion.

Ryan Hunter-Reay won the Indy 500,  becoming the first American to take it since 2006.  Hunter-Reay made a dramatic pass of Helio Castroneves on the final lap for second-closest finish in history.

In his first IndyCar race since 1995, Jacques Villeneuve finished in 14th position.
