(Victim, Max Levine)
The Indy 500 weekend was marred by tragedy and a 19-year-old man has been arrested for murder. A racing fan and father, Max Levine, 25, was shot and killed after an argument and fist fight escalated in the Coke Lot near the Indianapolis Motor Speedway where hundreds of fans camp yearly for the race. This happened around 2:00 a.m. Saturday morning in front of a crowd of witnesses. Speedway police have arrested Avery Johnson on murder charges.
The 98th running of the Indianapolis 500 over with Ryan Hunter-Reay racing to a historic finish. He beat three-time winner Helio Castroneves by six-one-hundredths of a second, making it the second-closest finish in the history of the race. Now, it’s time to clean up the track. The clean up of IMS revved up Monday morning with some non-profit groups making some cash. Volunteers from various nonprofit groups are spending their Memorial Day getting the trash out that was left behind by race fans throughout the weekend. Throughout the month of May, the Speedway gives groups funding in exchange for their help with various tasks in and around the historic track.
The Pacers are hoping for a win Monday night against Miami in Game Four of the Eastern Conference finals. The Heat now leads the series two games to one. Tip is at 8:30 p.m.
