Kevin Harvick pulled away from runner-up Kasey Kahne on the final restart with 11 laps remaining to win the Coca-Cola 600 for the second time in three years. Kurt Busch finished third, and polesitter Denny Hamlin was fourth in his second full race since returning from a back injury.  Speedway officials says 10 fans suffered non-life-threatening injuries when a nylon rope supporting a Fox Sports overhead television camera fell from the grandstands and landed on the track surface.  Tony Kanaan finished ahead of rookie Carlos Munoz for his first Indianapolis 500 victory in 12 career starts. Kanaan drove past Ryan Hunter-Reay on a restart with three laps to go, then coasted across the finish line under yellow when defending race winner Dario Franchitti crashed far back in the field.
