PRESS BOX: Hunter-Reay wins first Indy 500

The SportsXchange

A late pass to win the Indianapolis 500, a sweet ending Sunday for Ryan Hunter-Reay, the newest member of the Borg-Warner Trophy club.

Hunter-Reay scooted around three-time Indy 500 winner Helio Castroneves in Turn 3 to win his first race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and become the first American since 2006 to take the checkered flag.

Hunter-Reay was in an exchange with the Team Penske driver at the end -- the two bright yellow cars racing wheel-to-wheel under the white flag in a thrilling final lap.

Castroneves held off Marco Andretti to finish third.

Castroneves was trying to become the fourth driver to win a record fourth Indianapolis 500.

Carlos Munoz finished fourth with Kurt Busch sixth to give Andretti Autosport not only the winning car but also four in the top six.

Busch had a stellar day, running all 200 laps in his first Verizon IndyCar Series race. After celebrating with the crew, the 2004 NASCAR champion headed off to Charlotte Motor Speedway for the Sprint Cup Series race.


The Los Angeles Lakers are scheduled to interview Lionel Hollins for their head coaching vacancy this week, according to Yahoo Sports.

New York Rangers center Derek Stepan, recovering from a broken jaw suffered in Game 3, will not play in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final against the Montreal Canadiens on Sunday night at Madison Square Garden.

Rangers coach Alain Vigneault confirmed Sunday morning in his pregame briefing and said there is no timetable for Stepan's return.

Stepan suffered a broken jaw Thursday night after a late hit from former teammate and Canadiens forward Brandon Prust -- a hit that later earned Prust a two-game suspension.
