Honda?s Indy V8 Honored
Honda?s Indy V8 engine was named "2011 North American Race Engine of the Year." An Indy season to remember powered by Honda? Last year, the Englishmen Dan Wheldon won his second Indianapolis 500 in the wild finish in which J. R. Hildebrand, a California rookie, had an easy victory in front of him when on the last lap he careened off the wall of turn 4 allowing the hard charging Wheldon to take the checkered. Unfortunately, Dan died in a fiery 15-car accident when his car went airborne and hit the catch fence just 12 laps into the 300-mile IndyCar Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway last October.
