LUYENDYK TO RETIRE AFTER INDY 500

Arie Luyendyk says he will try for a third Indianapolis 500 win before stepping out of the open-wheel cockpit for good. The 45-year-old driver, a native of the Netherlands and a longtime resident of the United States, announced Friday that he will drive only that one more race in May before retiring from Indy car competition.

Luyendyk went through a frustrating 1998 season during which he was often uncompetitive and didn't win until the last race, in Las Vegas.

Luyendyk, who still holds the record of the fastest race at Indianapolis, said he wants to spend more time with his family.
