4:29 p.m. Weather conditions: air temperature 89 degrees, relative humidity 30 percent, barometer 29.16 inches, adjusted altitude 3,393 feet, track temperature 124 degrees.

Reichert is trying to become only the 2nd driver to win twice in TAD at Indy. The Other? Rick Santos. Shields was a runner up here, but he's still looking for his first Indy win.

Advantage Reichert. Shields lost traction early, pedaled, but couldn't catch the Rislone machine. Congrats to Bill and the entire team.
