Tony Kanaan's milk chug challenge
Milk distribution for each competitor
ESPN's Linsay Czarniak tweeted this photo that spills each driver's milk preference:

This is so cool. The list of what type of milk each driver wants in victory lane if they win... Hot off the press http://t.co/EAr5NOPo9u2013-5-26 12:42:38

A Race record encompasses 2013's excitement
According to Dave Lewandowski of IndyCar.com, this year's competition broke an obscene number of records. He broke it all down—and here is part of the race from Lewandowski's numerical perspective:
68 -- Race-record lead changes, breaking 34 in 2012.
14 -- Race-record different lap leaders -- a third of the field -- breaking 12 in 1993.
27 -- Race-record cars running at the finish, breaking 26 in 1911.
187.433 -- Average speed in miles per hour, a race record. Arie Luyendyk held the record of 185.981 mph since 1990. It was only the fourth time the race record has been broken.
226.940 -- Fastest lap in miles per hour by Justin Wilson on Lap 185.
223.651 -- Fastest lap in miles per hour by race leader, Carlos Munoz, on Lap 184.
4 -- Women to qualify (Simona De Silvestro, Ana Beatriz, Pippa Mann and Katherine Legge), the most since 2011.
21 -- Laps under caution for five yellow flags.
Curt Calvin of the Indianapolis Star sums it up beautifully:

Best #Indy500 ever. Safe so far. Unbelievable action. Sooo close.2013-5-26 18:36:28
Dario Franchitti's view from the start
This is a cool view of Dario Franchitti's perspective at the race's beginning.
Given that he's won two of the previous three Indy 500s (and three of the last six), a glimpse from his vantage point is quite surreal.
Clearly, this turned out to be one fantastic race from start to finish. To that end, it will be difficult for another Indy 500 to match this year's incredible field of talent and the suspenseful outcome toward the end.
