(TIMELINE) Follow along Alexander Rossi’s journey of an American dream

Alexander Rossi, a Nevada City native, won the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 Sunday, with Andretti Autosport.

The victory lane celebration was the crowning achievement for the 24-year-old, who has been tracking down his auto racing dreams since the age of 10 — and The Union has been along for the ride. Take a trip back in time and follow along Rossi’s journey toward achieving his dreams.

Rossi made his transition to IndyCar in early March and continues to compete in the series.

In September, Rossi realized a childhood dream in signing with F-1 team Manor Marussia and taking to the track for his debut in Singapore. The path has been a long and winding one for the 24-year-old, which began with an afternoon of racing with this father, Pieter, in Las Vegas at the age of 10.
