Indianapolis 500 winner Alexander Rossi was honored with a parade in Nevada city California to celebrate his home coming and Indy 500 win in May.

Earlier this week, Rossi received a declaration at the Capitol building from Californian senator Ted Gains.

Rossi who drives the No.98 Honda for Andretti Autosport led home a team 1-2 finish at the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil in May with his team mate Carlos Munoz ending the race in second place with Josef Newgarden completing the podium.

Rossi became the first Verizon IndyCar Series rookie to win the Indianapolis 500 since Helio Castroneves won in 2001.

Rossi, who is leading the Sunoco rookie of the year standings from Conor Daly by 75 points is looking forward to racing in Sonoma for the first time in the Verizon IndyCar Series.
