The best thing about going last on the greatest day of racing?

If you're a NASCAR Sprint Cup driver you got to see at least some of the Monaco Grand Prix and the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500. And you know the stock-car racers have a lot of respect for their open-wheel counterparts.

So congrats to Lewis Hamliton for winning in Monaco and rookie Alexander Rossi for his upset win at the Brickyard.
