SPEEDWAY, Ind. — Takuma Sato is still celebrating his second Indy 500 win. Sato had his victory photo shoot Monday morning.
Sato snatched a second Indianapolis 500 victory at empty Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sunday as the Japanese racer held off Scott Dixon and ultimately won under caution.
IndyCar officials declined to throw a red flag after a violent crash by Spencer Pigot with just a handful of laps remaining. Pigot needed medical attention on the track, the crash scene was a debris field and there was no way the race could resume without a stoppage.
IndyCar never threw the flag and Sato led Dixon across the finish line under yellow.
