NASCAR Sprint Cup star Kurt Busch says his IndyCar test with Andretti has left him open to a possible Indianapolis 500 campaign in the future, although he cautioned that a lot of work would have to be done before he feels ready.

James Hinchcliffe won an extraordinary IndyCar race in Sao Paulo by taking the lead from Takuma Sato on the final corner of the last lap. The Canadian’s attempt to pass Sato a lap earlier had been frustrated when the Japanese driver defended with a move that barely straddled the line between fair racing and blocking, and Hinchcliffe initially received a similar reception on his repeat attempt. But he responded by jinking to the other side of Sato’s car and getting a better run out of the corner, taking the lead for the first time in the race with the finish line in sight.
