LOOK BACK: Sato Claims Second Indy Win

INDIANAPOLIS — It was a surreal setting, like a dream that includes a combination of elements that make no sense. It was the wrong time of year and the world’s largest single-day sporting event was run without spectators. The dream had a happy ending for Takuma Sato, who won his second Indy 500, and it had a familiar result for Scott Dixon, who finished second after dominating the race. It was the third second-place finish for Dixon, who won the race in 2008. Once out front, Dixon appeared to be on a Sunday drive, but at the end of the race he was in the role of chaser and couldn’t catch Sato even with the help of lapped traffic. Sato’s race pace was faster than Dixon’s and no matter how hard he tried, Dixon could not close the gap.
