Marco dominates 36th running of Zoopolis 500

Ahead of Sunday’s IndyCar race, Marco has secured a runaway victory in the 2015 Zoopolis 500 presented by the American Dairy Association of Indiana.

Former Indianapolis 500 winner Tony Kanaan was the Grand Marshal for the event, throwing both the green and the checkered flag as the five tortoises raced down an incline at the Indianapolis Zoo to taste the milk (and fruits) awaiting them at the finish line.

Marco got off to a slow start but took the lead when the leader bounced off of the wall.  After that he never looked back, and was able to extend his lead in a race that went caution-free, plodding his way into the history books as the winner of the 36th annual Greatest Spectacle in Tortoise Racing.
