Will Power, in the No. 1 car, and Charlie Kimball, in the No. 83 car, made up the second- and third-place spots, respectively. For the last quarter of the race, it was a constant battle for first, second, and third, with Montoya, Dixon, Power, and Kimball changing spots over and over again.
Here are a few other highlights from the 2015 Indy 500 race:
- Right after hearing "ladies and gentlemen, start your engines," the No. 48 car driven by Alex Tagliani did not fire, and he didn't start with the rest of the group. He was allowed to compete once his car fired up.
- During the first parade lap, Conor Daly's No. 43 car had a small fire, which was severe enough to put him out for the entire race.
- Right after the first green flag of the race, there was a crash half-way through Lap 1, involving Sage Karam in the No. 8 car and Takuma Sato in the No. 14 car. Karam was pretty peeved about the incident, tweeting some not-so-kind words to Sato.
- Ed Carpenter (No. 20) and Oriol Servia (No. 32) crashed half-way through Turn 1 on Lap 113. In an interview, Carpenter was upset, saying he "thought that was dirty" that he was blocked going into the turn.
- Tony Kanaan, who led the race for a long time, crashed on Lap 152, giving up any chance he had at victory. Interestingly, race announcers noted Kanaan was complaining about understeer in his car for a while. In an interview, Kanaan noted that a modification to his car is likely what caused him to crash.
- The final Yellow Flag of the race occurred on Lap 176, with a three-car incident that put Jack Hawksworth, Stefano Coletti, and Sebastian Saavedra out.
The IndyCar series moves to Michigan next weekend, for the Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix.
