2012 Indy 500 Winner And Results: Dario Franchitti Captures 3rd Victory

Dario Franchitti has laid claim to the 2012 Indy 500 championship after a tense finish to the race. Marco Andretti crashed on Turn 1 while in eighth place and then Takuma Sato attempted to take the lead on Franchitti and also crashed. Franchitti then was able to pick up his third victory at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, previously winning in 2007 and 2010.

Video of the victory can be seen below:

And so we see the Target car cross the finish line for the victory, Andretti pumping his fist exultantly. Also, Ashley Judd, who might just be the best known IndyCar fan, celebrates the victory since she is married to Franchitti. "One! Two! Three! Oh my!"
