Juan Pablo Montoya wins Indy 500

Montoya on second Indy 500 win

Juan Pablo Montoya discusses coming from 30th in the field to win the Indianapolis 500 for the second time, 15 years after he won it in his first appearance.

Fifteen years after he won the race in his first appearance, Juan Pablo Montoya won his second Indianapolis 500 on Sunday.

Montoya, Will Power and Scott Dixon traded the top three spots over the final dozen laps of green flag racing.

After watching Power jockey for the lead with Chip Ganassi Racing's Dixon for several laps, Montoya went high into Turn 3 to take over second place then darted past Power on the frontstretch to take the lead. He pulled away from there to win IndyCar's showcase race.

Montoya rallied after a bizarre start to the race. Following an early caution, Simona de Silvestro ran into his rear, causing damage to his wing. Montoya's crew managed to fix it under caution, and the 2000 Indy 500 champion methodically worked his way back to the front.

The win gives team owner Roger Penske his 16th 500 victory.

Power, another Penske driver, finished second, followed by Charlie Kimball. Dixon was fourth and Graham Rahal fifth.

Montoya is the 19th driver to win the Indy 500 twice.
