The Associated Press has updated its survey of living Indianapolis 500 winners and their pick as the greatest race in the long history of the event. There are six races that received multiple votes, topped by Unser victory over Goodyear in 1992 — the closest Indy 500 in history. The others are Emerson Fittipaldi's win in 1989; Sam Hornish Junior's win in 2006; the 1982 battle between Rick Mears and Gordon Johncock; the 2011 race won by the late Dan Wheldon; and the 2014 thriller won by Ryan Hunter-Reay.
