The Complete History of Indianapolis 500 Winners

2010: Dario Franchitti

Starting Position: 3
Race Time: 3:05:37.0131
Chassis/engine: Dallara/Honda
Franchitti was able to nurse his fuel tank to the finish for his second Indy 500 win, but behind him, chaos ensued. Ryan Hunter-Reay ran out of gas coming to the checkers, causing his car to slow dramatically. Mike Conway had nowhere to go and he launched into the catch fence, breaking his left leg as well as suffering compression fractures in his back and neck. Conway made a full recovery and bounced back to win his first IndyCar series race at Long Beach in April 2011.
