The American motor racer Ryan Hunter-Reay has won a dramatic Indianapolis 500 edging out the great Helio Castroneves by 6-100ths of a second after they'd traded the lead over the last few laps of the 200 lap race.

Hunter-Reay had finished third in last year's race while the Brazilian Castroneves was bidding to become a four-time winner.

New Zealander Scott Dixon's race ended on lap 167 when he slammed into the wall whilst in fourth place.
