Marco Andretti came in third.

All three women in the race were knocked out. Sarah Fisher, making her seventh Indy 500 start, had bad luck throughout the day, beginning when her engine wouldn't start at the start of the race. Fisher's race ended in the 105th lap when a crash with Tony Kanaan knocked both her and Kanaan out of the race.

A native of Commercial Point, Ohio, Sarah Fisher earlier this year became a team owner as well as a driver when she formed Sarah Fisher Racing.

Danicamania came to an abrupt end when Danica Patrick's car was knocked out late in the race. Her car was damaged not in a racetrack crash, but when her car was hit as she was on her way out of a pit stop.

The third woman, Milka Duno, was eliminated when a skid caused her tires to burn out late in the race.
