The Indy 500

Takuma Sato won the INDY 500 for Michael Andretti's team on Monday. Auto Week reports: "Takuma Sato’s win on Sunday marked the second consecutive year a former F1 driver -- last year it was Alexander Rossi -- was drinking the milk in victory circle at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. It was also the second consecutive Indy 500 win and third in the last four years for team owner Michael Andretti and Andretti Autosport.

Sato, a 40-year-old native of Tokyo and the first Japanese driver to win the race, was in victory circle for just the second time in 124 career IndyCar starts."

It is sad that a tweet can lead to firing and overshadow an event. Terry Frei posted “Nothing specifically personal, but I am very uncomfortable with a Japanese driver winning the Indianapolis 500 during Memorial Day weekend,” Frei tweeted after Sato became the first Japanese driver to win the prestigious race. He was fired by the Denver Post. Frei was named Colorado sportswriter of the year four times. His father flew 67 missions and over 300 combat hours in WW2. His perspective is understandable, if not politically correct for 2017.
