2006 Indianapolis 500 - Full Race

Race: Indianapolis 500 | Winner: Sam Hornish Jr

The 90th Indianapolis 500 was won by American IndyCar driver Sam Hornish Jr. of Team Penske. Hornish Jr. won from the pole position, but the race was one of the closest in Indy 500 history with the margin of victory a mere 0.0635 seconds. The win marked Team Penske's fourteenth Indy victory. Defending champion Dan Wheldon commanded the race for 148 of the 200 laps, but a small tire puncture forced him to take an early pit stop and enabled a frenzied three-way race for the championship that resulted in Hornish's razor thin victory.
