|Second death in shooting near Kaitaia|
Kiwi driver Scott Dixon's narrowly missed claiming a second Indianapolis 500 title, finishing second to Chip Ganassi team-mate Dario Franchitti.
The two swapped the lead several times during the closing stages, with Franchitti eventually winning the race under safety after Takuma Sato spun out.
It's Franchitti's third title.
He's dedicated the title to his friend Dan Wheldon, who died in a race last year.
Dixon says they were pushed with in the closing stages by Japanese driver Takuma Sato who made a play to break their dominance.
"I wasn't really expecting Sato to dive in there with two to go. Had to give him room because he was pretty aggressive all day and I didn't want to end my race there, but I thought we were in a pretty good position."
The other New Zealander in the field, Wade Cunningham was forced from the race after electrical trouble.
