Controversial decision under caution at Indy 500

Indianapolis- With five laps to go, Spencer Pigot crashed his car, which brought out a caution for the remainder of the race.

Indy drivers, as well as fans, were extremely upset that the race ended on a yellow flag. “IndyCar makes every effort to end races under green, but in this case following the assessment of the incident, there were too few laps remaining to gather the field behind the pace car, issue a red flag and then restart,” the series said in a statement.

The winner of the 2020 Indy 500 was Takuma Sato. Sato becomes the 20th driver to win the Indy 500 multiple times. "It's not a happy place," Sato said. "It's tough on everyone, not only for us. It was just fortunate, so fortunate, to be able to perform as a sport, be able to show millions of people watching TV today at home, get some energy on it."

After the race, a lot of drivers and fans wanted the Indy 500 committee to take a look at the rules and figure out a way for future races not to go under caution because the caution ruins a good race.
