Indy 500 Winners: Brickyard Heroes

© Jason Porter / IMSIndy 500 Winners
A highlight of Memorial Day weekend for racing fans, the Indianapolis 500 reigns as one of the premier auto races in the world, where the best drivers and teams compete flat-out for 500 miles at the iconic track known as “The Brickyard.” The race has always been associated with Memorial Day, and since 1971 has been held on Sunday of Memorial Day weekend — except for rain delays. But this year is different: due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Indianapolis 500 has been rescheduled to August 23, 2020. As Memorial Day approaches, let’s roar down memory lane and look back at all previous Indy 500 winners.

In 2019 Simon Pagenaud earned his first Indy 500 win, starting from the pole position in the No. 22 Menards Team Penske Dallara/Chevrolet. Pagenaud led 116 of the 200 laps to take the victory by 0.2086 of a second over 2016 Indy 500 winner Alexander Rossi. Pagenaud’s 2019 Indy 500 win was also the 18th Indy 500 win for Team Penske — the most wins by any entrant in the history of the race. (Team owner Roger Penske earned his first victory with Mark Donahue at the wheel of the No. 66 Sunoco McLaren in 1966.) Keep reading for a look back at all Indy 500 winners from the first race in 1911 to the present. Note: The Indianapolis 500 was not run between 1917–18 and 1942–45 because of World Wars I and II, respectively.
