 Arie Luyendyk, Emerson Fittipaldi - 1990 "Indianapolis 500"
Given the hero's reception that Luyendyk received, during the two weeks of activity, for the 83rd "Indianapolis 500," it's easy to forget how strange it seemed, in 1990, for Arie Luyendyk to win the "greatest spectacle in racing." The 1990 "500" was Arie's first Indy car win.
Luyendyk, consistently among the fastest drivers, in practice, qualified at 223.304 mph, to grab the outside front row starting spot, next to Fittipaldi and Rick Mears, at 224.215 mph.
Arie must feel a lot of pride that he holds the official one lap record (237.4498 mph), the official four lap record (236.986) and the record for 500 miles.

Luyendyk said the timing is right for his decision, saying he wanted to help his 17-year-old son, Arie Jr., with his racing.
Luyendyk was easily the biggest name to remain with the new series when the established teams of CART chose to boycott the IRL.

Then, Arie Luyendyk will finish his short walk to a long day of racing, outwardly calm and with both eyes focused on the prize he wants one last time.
Luyendyk punctuates the end of his sentence with the subtle, pencil-thin smile the entire Indy crowd has come to know so well since he first walked into the Indianapolis speedway in 1985 as a relatively unknown road-racer from the Netherlands.
Though Luyendyk is the antithesis of the all-American, oval-track racer at center stage of the Indy Racing League's proclaimed vision, the fans have voted him the most popular driver on the IRL circuit the past two years.

 Final turn: Luyendyk never imagined competing in race
The highlight of Luyendyk's 1985 season, as it would be for just about any rookie driver, was the Indianapolis 500, at which Luyendyk finished seventh in the race, top in the class of six rookies in just his third Indy-car start.
Luyendyk's first Indy victory guaranteed him a place in history but neither it nor his superior understanding of the car could assure him of a future in Indy-car racing.
Luyendyk might have hung up his helmet earlier -- and could have gone out on top following his victory in the season finale in Las Vegas last fall -- but felt he owed it to Treadway, his sponsors and his fans to provide closure in the race that gave him his place in the sport.
