Bobby Rahal set his sights on winning at least one 500 race this year and credited his crew and luck in helping him capture his first victory at the Pocono International Raceway in Long Pond, Pa. He took the CART-PPG Quaker State 500 Sunday in a Lola by 17.5 seconds over Al Unser Jr.

Both Mario Andretti and his nephew, John Andretti, were injured slightly during the race.

Rahal's average speed for the afternoon was 133.71 miles per hour.
