The race set the record for most lead changes in the Indy 500 (35), Franchitti, Andretti, Scott Dixon, Tony Kanaan, James Hinchcliffe and even former F1 stars Rubens Barichello and Takuma Sato were amongst the leaders.

An emotional Franchitti, donning Wheldon's trademark white framed sunglasses, said in victory lane: "To be on the trophy beside Dan on either side, that means more than anything. Everybody up there was a friend of Dan's and everybody loved Dan. I think DW [Dan Wheldon] would be proud of that one."
