Rookie Alexander Rossi drinks milk after winning 100th running of Indianapolis 500

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Andretti Autosport’s Alexander Rossi used fuel strategy to capture the historic 100th running of the Indianapolis 500.

It was high drama as the rookie ran out of gas in the last turn, but had enough momentum to coast across the finish line ahead of teammate Carlos Munoz.  He made his final pit stop with 36 laps left and was able to stretch that tank of gas over the final 90 miles.

Sunday’s milestone Indy 500 was just Rossi’s sixth career IndyCar race.  He became the 10th rookie to win and first since Helio Castroneves in 2001.

After his victory against all odds, Rossi talked one on one with Indy Sports Central’s Mike Berman.
