Congratulations to Indiana's own Logan Gomez, who won the Chicagoland 100 Indy Pro race by 1.65 inches. I don't care what kind of racing you prefer, having a race decided by 0.0005 seconds is incredible. We may need a new word to describe a finish this tightly contested - something like thscls.

The 19-year-old Gomez's first IPS win came at the expense of his glorious teammate, Alex Lloyd, who was likely competing in his final IPS race. Lloyd seems confident he is headed for the IndyCar series in 2008, and considering he won 7 races at the lower level this year one can hardly argue with his awesomeness.

Of note, Robbie Pecorari - who drives for Sammy Hagar's Team KMA - finished an impressive third. My Name Is IRL chatterbox Mike Potekhen stormed up to fifth, and Leilani Munter finished 13th after spinning out at the start of the race. Zero points of flair for that one.

Also, Jimmy Kite finished 10th, although he was called out by Adam Andretti for chopping him off and ending his day. Lots of yellow laps, including a flip by Wade Cunningham, who of course drives an Andretti Green IPS car. Further proof AGR cars have ailerons.
