Indy 500 2019 results: Will Power, Simon Pagenaud, winner, highlights, timings, Indianapolis

Published

on

Simon Pagenaud may have saved his job by giving Roger Penske a golden Indianapolis 500 victory.

Pagenaud gave the venerable team owner his 18th victory in “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” by out-duelling Alexander Rossi in a breathtaking 13-lap sprint to the finish Sunday.

The two swapped the lead five times over the final stretch before Pagenaud stormed to the front for good seconds before taking the white flag.

Rossi chased him for the final lap around Indianapolis Motor Speedway but fell 0.2086 seconds shy of his second Indy 500 win – the seventh-closest finish in the 103 years of the race.

Defending champion Australian Will Power was taken out of contention early on after suffering a pit penalty but rebounded to finish fifth behind Japan’s Takuma Sato and local Josef Newgarden.
