4:48 p.m. It's the 7th Indy final round appearance in a row for Tony Schumacher. He has won five of them. This is a repeat of the legendary Pomono final round of 2007, and the Kalitta camp, sponsor Mac Tools and quite a few the fans are looking for Doug to end Tony's record setting round win streak at 23.

Make it six wins in a row - a record, 11 wins this season, another record, and 24 straight round wins, well yep, that's another record as well. Not much else to say, the Army team has dominated all day. That's it from Indy - The 2008 Big Go is in the books, goodnight from Indianapolis!
