Simon the tortoise wins Zoopolis 500

Indianapolis 500 champion Tony Kanaan was the grand marshal, but the real stars were the tortoises.

INDIANAPOLIS β€” People are feeling the excitement of race weekend all across central Indiana.

That includes the Indianapolis Zoo, where they had the 43rd running of the "Zoopolis 500" Wednesday β€” the greatest spectacle in tortoise racing!

Indianapolis 500 champion Tony Kanaan was the grand marshal, but the real stars were the tortoises.

The racers were competing to see who could get to the fruit at the finish line the fastest.

In the end, it was a radiated tortoise named Simon that took the win.

But don't worry, the feast was more than one tortoise could handle alone, so all the hard-shelled racers got to partake in the festivities.
