INDIANAPOLIS (Reuters) -Helio Castroneves won the Indianapolis 500 for a record-equalling fourth time on Sunday, in front of the largest crowd to attend a sporting event in the United States since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 46-year-old Brazilian surged to the front with two laps to go and held off a challenge from hard-charging Spanish young gun Alex Palou to claim victory and join AJ Foyt, Rick Mears and Al Unser as the only four-time winners of the "Greatest Spectacle in Racing".
