Franchitti wins his third Indy 500
Dario Franchitti won the Indianapolis 500 for the third time Sunday after Takuma Sato crashed on the final lap. The Japanese driver went for the lead going into the first turn, pulling even with Franchitti. But he went in too low, and the crash sent him into the outside wall. Sato’s car barely missed Franchitti, who coasted across the line under a yellow caution flag to become the 10th driver to win at least three Indy 500s.
