Old Guys Rule: Gateway podium led by Sato

Sato, the 42-year-old veteran who’d been accused of causing a crash the previous weekend at Pocono Raceway — and vigorously defended by his team — outlasted 38-year-old Ed Carpenter and Kanaan for a surprising 1-2-3 finish that spoke of redemption, experience and the unpredictability of auto racing.
“That’s the beauty of this sport, with motor racing,” Sato said.
Sato beat Carpenter to the finish line by just 0.0399 seconds for what he called his most significant win since the 2017 Indianapolis 500.
“I don’t need to say anything,” Sato said.
