Takuma Sato grabbed a slice of IndyCar history on Sunday, becoming the first Japanese driver to win a race in the US open-wheel series at the Long Beach Grand Prix.
"This is just amazing," Sato said after leading 50 of 80 laps and piloting the No. 14 car for A.J. Foyt racing across the line ahead of Graham Rahal.
"It was just a perfect weekend to be honest," he added. "The team did a tremendous job. Pit stops, right calls, the power was great, and I was comfortable in the car and able to push everything."
