2011 saw the 100th running of the Indy 500 and Sports Illustrated produced a Special Edition magazine featuring classic stories from the race and rare photographs. There would be few if any copies signed by the race winner Dan Wheldon and the pole position winner Alex Tagliani.
The race will go down as a classic. Coming in on the front stretch the rookie J. R. Hildebrand went high to avoid the slower car of Charlie Kimball, who was on the inside line, and collided with the wall. Without steering and on only three wheels, the car slid down the front stretch towards the finish line. Second place Dan Wheldon skirted by in the final 1,000 feet, and crossed the line first.
Tragically after this famous victory and the second Indianapolis 500 win of Wheldon’s career he was killed during a race in October in Las Vegas.
