PHOENIX -- Arie Luyendyk reached Victory Circle for the first time since winning the Indianapolis 500 last May.
"It's really great to get that . . . off my shoulders," the Dutchman said after Danny Sullivan's blown engine allowed him to drive his Chevrolet-powered Lola across the finish line on the one-mile Phoenix International Raceway oval under a combination of checker and yellow flags.
Luyendyk, who started ninth in the 22-car field, earned the second victory in his Indy-car career, adding this one to a solid fifth-place showing the previous weekend in Long Beach, Calif.
