Ryan Hunter-Reay became the first US racer in eight years to win the Indianapolis 500 today and denied hard-charging Brazilian Helio Castroneves a record-equaling fourth victory at the Brickyard.

Billed as "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing," the 98th Indy 500 lived up to the hype with a dramatic finish as Hunter-Reay beat Castroneves to the checkered by less than a car length to become the first US winner since Sam Hornish in 2006.

American Marco Andretti, trying to become the first member of the Andretti clan to reach Victory Lane since his grandfather Mario Andretti in 1969, finished third.

It marked the first time in five years the race had finished under green, the previous four ending under caution.
