Sam Hornish Jr. earned his first Indianapolis 500 victory – and the record 14th Indy win for team owner Roger Penske – in dramatic fashion by passing rookie Marco Andretti on the last lap, just before the finish line. Hornish’s margin of victory was 0.0635 of a second, the second-closest finish in “500” history. Hornish’s pass of Andretti marked the first time in race history that the winner took the lead on the final lap.
