The 79th Indianapolis 500 is won by Jacques Villeneuve. On lap 190, with the field coming back to green on a restart, leader Scott Goodyear of Toronto passed the pace car in turn four, and was assessed a stop-and-go penalty. Goodyear refused to serve the penalty, claiming that the green light was on, and stayed out on the track. Officials stopped scoring him on lap 195, which handed fellow Canadian Jacques Villeneuve the lead of the race, and ultimately, a controversial victory.
