Marcus Ericsson Wins The Indianapolis 500

INDIANAPOLIS — Marcus Ericsson survived a thrilling green-white-checkered finish to win the 106th running of the Indianapolis 500 Sunday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Dixon was credited with leading Lap 8 when he passed Palou in turn one. Dixon and Daly were among the first to hit pit road on lap 30. Dixon passed Palou on the following lap continuing the lead changing dynamic of this race. Dixon pitted for four tires and fuel before rookie driver Callum Ilott became the second driver to crash into the turn-two wall on lap 70. But the only lap Dixon was interested in leading was the 200th lap and the checkered flag. Dixon pitted on lap 141 for four tires and a tear-off of the aeroscreen. When O’Ward pitted, he had a great in and out lap and was able to return to the track in front of Dixon. With 50 laps to go, it was O’Ward, Dixon, Felix Rosenqvist, Daly and Ferrucci.
