INDIANAPOLIS, IN - Takuma Sato became the first Japanese winner of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday when he denied Helio Castroneves a record-tying fourth victory as the two traded the lead in the closing laps.

Sato was a former Formula One driver who took the checkerd flag at the 2017 Indy 500, driving for Andretti Autosport.

Fort Wayne-based Ruoff Home Mortgage was the primary sponsor of Sato’s car. Andretti and Ruoff made the announcement less than a week ago that the mortgage company would sponsor Sato in Sunday’s race.
