Dario Franchitti, Takuma Sato Battle into Turn 1 in 2012 Indianapolis 500
It was one of the ultimate head-to-head showdowns in Indianapolis 500 history, and neither driver was going to blink on the final lap. Sato kept his right foot pressed to the floor, with his left wheel dipping below the white line as his car tried to slip past Franchitti, on his right, for the lead. Then Sato’s blue-and-white car did a three-quarter spin at the apex of Turn 1, and his machine -- and dreams of Indianapolis 500 glory – crashed against the SAFER Barrier in Turn 1. Replays were inconclusive as to whether the cars made contact. Franchitti moved higher up the track to avoid Sato’s spinning car, and he barely held on to his machine to keep the lead when the caution flag flew, ensuring his third Indianapolis 500 victory. While Franchitti basked in the glory of drinking milk in Victory Lane for the third time, Sato gained enormous respect and adulation from fellow drivers and fans for his brave, refuse-to-lift effort on the last lap despite his 17th-place finish after the crash. No one ever would take Takuma Sato lightly again at Indianapolis after that day, and Sato would earn popular redemption for the 2012 crash when he won the “500” five years later.

Emerson Fittipaldi Collides with Al Unser Jr. on the Closing Laps of 1989 Indianapolis 500
Unser pulled to within a car length of Fittipaldi on Lap 193, and the two drivers nearly touched wheels a lap later while working traffic and dicing for the lead. On Lap 196, Unser passed Fittipaldi for the lead in Turn 3, pulling away due to his lighter fuel tanks. On Lap 199, Unser was slowed by lapped traffic, which let Fittipaldi gain ground. Fittipaldi pulled inside Unser on the backstretch amid thick lapped traffic, and the two cars entered Turn 3 side by side with the crowd roaring and on its feet. Both drivers were racing at 10/10ths, and Fittipaldi’s Penske/Chevrolet car drifted a bit high in Turn 3, touching wheels with Unser’s Lola/Chevy. Unser spun and crashed hard into the Turn 3 wall. The caution flag flew, and Fittipaldi was guaranteed his first Indianapolis 500 victory and became the first foreign-born Indy 500 winner since fellow Formula One World Champion Graham Hill in 1966.

Closest Indy 500 Finish with Al Unser Jr. and Scott Goodyear in 1992
The closest finish in Indianapolis 500 history, between Al Unser Jr. and Scott Goodyear in 1992, almost didn’t happen for a reason often forgotten – Goodyear didn’t qualify for the race. Unser led by three-tenths of a second with four laps remaining, parrying Goodyear through the final lap. Goodyear continued to draft Unser on the final lap, staying within two car lengths. But Unser’s Galles Racing Galmer/Chevrolet got slightly loose in Turn 4 on the final lap, and Goodyear pounced. He pulled up to Unser’s gearbox on the front straight, with the checkered flag in the air. Goodyear darted out of the draft and to the inside but fell just a few feet short of Unser at the Yard of Bricks start-finish line. The official margin of victory was .043 of a second – almost exactly half of the time span that bumped Scott Goodyear from the field just a week earlier – in the closest finish in Indianapolis 500 history.
