Packed into this 100 thrilling minutes of entertainment are in-depth looks inside this exciting sport: an audio commentary by Buddy Rice, who won this race after stepping into the cockpit as a substitute driver for Kenny Brack who was recovering from his injuries, and features with other drivers, including comments from Helio Castroneves, striving to capture his third Indy victory in a row. Follow Buddy Rice as this newcomer surprisingly heightens the competition, not only grabbing the pole from Dan Wheldon, but also capturing the title in the Pit Stop Challenge. Take part in the jubilation as this Rahal-Letterman driver — converted from snow-boarding champion — wins his first victory at this famed Indianapolis 2 ½-mile superspeedway.
