Dario Franchitti — full name George Dario Marino Franchitti, a Scottish-born racer of Italian descent — took home the flag from the 2010 Indianapolis 500 Sunday, May 30. He won at the Indy 500 back in 2007 as well. Dario’s victory lets car owner Chip Ganassi become the first owner to win at Indy and the Daytona 500 in the same year.
Franchitti’s win kept racer Helio Castroneves from becoming the fourth driver in history to win a record four times at Indy. Castroneves was in the top 3 until he stalled after a pit stop during the 145th lap (there are 200 laps in total). Helio finished ninth.
