(CNN) — Helio Castroneves finished first in the 105th running of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday.

It is Castroneves’ fourth Indy 500 win, following victories in 2001, 2002 and 2009.

The 46-year-old Brazilian was driving for Meyer Shanks Racing.

Castroneves is known as “Spiderman” for climbing the fence to celebrate his wins, according to the IndyCar.com site.

“This will be a fence climb for the ages,” IndyCar tweeted after the race finish.

The event at Indianapolis Motor Speedway was billed as the most-attended sporting event since the pandemic’s start, with the 135,000 tickets available — approximately 40% of the Indiana racetrack’s capacity — quickly selling out.
