The Scottish driver beat out teammate Scott Dixon for the title. Dixon finished second and Tony Kanaan finished third, with Japanese driver Takuma Sato crashing in the final lap to miss out on placing at the top.
Franchitti dedicated his win to close friend Dan Wheldon, who died in an October 2011 race. “I want to thank all the fans for saluting our Dan today,” he said after his victory.
Franchitti also won the Indy 500 in 2007 and 2010. Check out some post-victory snapshots below!
