Rules _are_ rules: wheldon passed Hildebrand before the yellow light came out, so it was a valid pass. Otherwise Hildebrand would have won it in the wreck (has a wrecked winner ever happened before?).

The only more-painful finish I could think of was 1992: unser started 4th outside (12th place), Goodyear started 11th outside (33rd, last place) and lost by the closest '500 margin: 0.043 seconds.
