FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Indianapolis 500 winner Ryan-Hunter Reay understands why his bold move past Helio Castroneves was viewed as risky.
Hunter-Reay watched the replay of the closing laps. He says it was "ridiculously close to watch" on TV and that he felt more in control in the car during the race.
Even though that wasn't the winning pass, and Hunter-Reay had to get around Castroneves again before taking the checkered flag, the inside move was quite a highlight.
Hunter-Reay made the last stop on his post-Indy 500 victory tour Wednesday, meeting with Texas Motor Speedway sponsors and season ticket holders.
That came after starting the day started in New York City. His next stop was Detroit, where the IndyCar Series runs dual races this weekend before heading to Texas the following week.
