Racing buffs have a Pavlovian response to the name Danny Sullivan. Spin and win. Here's how it went down: Sullivan challenged Mario Andretti for the lead on the 120th lap. He took the top spot but lost control as they raced into turn 1. Mario initially avoided the spinning Sullivan, but the two met once again 20 laps later. This time, Sullivan completed the pass without incident and went on to win the race.
