The Little 500 Sprint car race was run Sunday Night with Chris Windom at 20 years of age taking his 1st ever win at Anderson in the Little 500 event. Chris passed Eric Gordon for the lead with just  afew laps to and was able to hold on for the win. Congrats to Chris Windom and his crew and race team.
This was my 1st ever Little 500 and I was impressed with the three wide start of the race. I sat in turn four at Anderson and that is an awesome view of those fast sprints coming into turn four. It was a greta race I may go back next year asmy friend Rick really enjoyed his 2st ever Little 500 as well.
