The Indy 500 has a new winner and that is Dario Franchitti, who sure is Ashley Juddâ€™s sexy husband, but today it is all about him and his awesome performance in Indiana. Keep reading to know more about this story plus check out Dario Franchittiâ€™s photos and video below.
Even before the race started we knew that Dario was going to be an extremely dangerous competitor for 2009 Indy 500 winner Helio Castroneves, and Dario didnâ€™t disappoint his fans, as he became the 2010 Indy 500 winner.
For Dario to win his second Indy 500 was a great experience, the first time he won was back in 2007 (151.774 average Speed) and now on May 30, 2010 he is savoring victory once again.
Since the May 15â€™th practices Dario stayed on the top places, and on pole day on May 22 he qualified in the 3rd place hitting 227.970 mph and on the starting grid. He joined Australian Will Power and Brazilian Helio Castroneves in the first row.
At the 200 laps race it was Dario who totally dominated for the first 155 without even taking a pit stop, but when his fuel began to run low there was nothing to do but stop at lap 36, he regained his winning position in a second.
When he was in his two final laps he encountered the terrible crash by Ryan Hunter Reay and Mike Conway who broke his leg, the rest is history. Dario and Chip Ganassi were proclaimed winners. For Ganassi it is his 4th Indy victory, as usual the winner takes a taste of the famous glass of milk.
"This tastes just as good the second time" Dario said after having his victorious glass of milk.
As for the rest of the other drivers’ results, we have Dan Wheldon, who last year was in second place and again in this one, Alex Lloyd in third, Scott Dixon was fourth, last yearâ€™s third place Danica Patrick finished fifth while last Indyâ€™s winner Helio Castroneves experienced some trouble that sent him in ninth place.
As for the Indy 500 winner Scottish Dario Franchitti, he is celebrating with his beautiful actress wife Ashley Judd, who celebrated with him in 2007. Congratulations!!! Check out Dario Franchettiâ€™s photos and videos below.
