Scott Dixon Wins Indy 500
Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon drove his No. 9 Target car to victory in the Indy 500 ay Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Dixon’s pit crew got him out with the lead on the final pit stop. He held off Panther Racing’s Vitor Meira to win Ganassi’s third Indy 500 victory.
Top 10: Dixon, Miera, Marco Andretti, Helio Castroneves, Ed Carpenter, Ryan Hunter-Reay, Hideki Mutoh, Buddy Rice, Darren Manning, and Townsend Bell.

Danica Patrick got hit by Ryan Briscoe on pit road, which broke the left rear suspension, ending her day.
After the incident, she slammed her steering wheel down in frustration. When her car was pushed back to the pits, she took off her gloves and began making her way, angrily, toward Briscoe’s pit. A track official stopped her.
