Rookie leader crashes coming out of turn four and slides across the finish line in second.

Kind of a bummer that the National Guard sponsored rig crashes on the last turn when leading the race on Memorial Day.

Great ending though! Would have been funny if he'd stopped short of the finish line and finished Talledega Nights style running across the line.
The beatings will continue until morale improves

Well done to Dan Wheldon, a perfect illustration of "to finish first, first you must finish"

Well many here in Los Angeles probably don't care about the race itself, but are excited as the winning car was sponsored by Justin Timberlake's clothing line -- William Rast.
