Two very unusual races occurred this past Sunday.  At the Indy 500, Alexander Rossi, a 24-year old rookie driver from California, out-smarted his more seasoned opponents and won the 100th Indy 500 race.  Before more than 350,000 fans, he stretched his fuel and coasted across the finish line with the most coveted prize in...
