An unusual day at the speedway began with the opening of Gasoline Alley to female spectators for the first time ever. Then it got stranger when the Dodge Challenger pace car wiped out into a crowd of photographers and injured 29 people. Once the race was finally underway, Al Unser had the car to beat, leading the final 83 laps for his 2nd straight Indy 500 win.
