Indianapolis Motor Speedway|
Ashley Judd and Scotsman Dario Franchitti have reason to celebrate this Memorial Day Weekend. His #50 hot red racer, which started back in the 6th row, pulled him across the brick start-finish line first for the third time.
Also running in this race was another three-time winner, Brazilian Helio Castroneves. The Penske Team strategy succumbed to Chip Ganassi’s Team along a blistering 95 degree, 2.5 mile oval track.
Helio had hoped to dance and win his record-tying 4th victory today. Next year, both he and Dario will compete for the speedway record.
