Strange days prevailed at the speedway for another year. Rain pushed the conclusion of the race to Tuesday, messing up Robby Gordon's bid for an Indy/NASCAR double. When the event finally neared completion, the USAC race officials botched a late caution period leaving the drivers confused and angry. They were not expecting the race to be restarted, but the green and white flags were displayed simultaneously while the tracks caution lights were still illuminated. Luyendyk grabbed his second Indy 500 victory over his teammate Scott Goodyear.
