Kanaan Finishes All Laps

Yesterday in the season finale for the IRL racing series, Tony Kanaan finished second, celebrated his first series championship, and set a record by finishing every single lap in every race the IRL ran this year.

Apparently this has never been accomplished in any of the major racing series:

Kanaan made it through 16 races over nine months for
Andretti Green Racing without an accident, engine
failure or even a flat tire. He is the first driver
in any major series to complete every lap. (Yahoo! Sports)

Don’t forget, IRL is coming to the SF Bay Area next year. I think I’ll start following IRL more closely again!
