Black Key Bulls took first place at the 64th annual Men's Little 500.

Black Key Bulls took first place at the 64th annual Little 500 men’s race on Saturday.

But as the team crossed the finish line, there wasn’t the usual roar from the crowd. Between turns three and four of lap 199, Beta Theta Pi (last year’s winners), crashed, taking out six of the seven front runners in the final lap.

Only eight of 33 teams crossed the finish line completing all 200 laps. Second place was Phi Delta Theta and Delta Tau Delta took third.

Here’s a look at the 2014 Men’s Little 500 race:

Women’s Little 500

Kappa Theta Pi took their fifth, first place win at this years Women’s Little 500 race Friday.

Fans and riders wore stickers in support of rider Lauren Gill, a student who planned to ride in this years race for the IU Nursing bike team.

During a practice round on April 17, Gill crashed, landing on her shoulders and head. She remains in treatment from her injuries at IU Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis.
