In an exceptionally-clean race that saw only two caution periods across 500 miles of battling on-track, Italian driver Michele Costantini was the man left standing at the end to win the inaugural running of the Open-Wheels.com 500 Mile Race on Sunday. Costantini, who pilots the No. 66 Dallara IR-18 Honda for Apex Racing Team with Indy 500 Group, led 63 laps en route to victory while setting a blistering pace of 199.641 miles per hour.
