Indy 500 2012 Results: Drivers Who Are Primed to Build on Success at Indy
In one of the most competitive Indy 500s ever, 10 different drivers led at some point, and there were a race-record 35 lead changes throughout the day.
Although they didn't wear the wreath in victory lane, these three drivers built up some positive momentum at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Dixon won the Indy 500 in 2008, but he couldn't add another Borg-Warner Trophy to his collection this year.
Instead, he'll have to settle for his third second-place finish of the year, which bumped him into fourth in the IndyCar point standings.
With 14 races to go, Dixon is in a prime position to claim his third career IndyCar championship. Look for him to build off his strong showing at Indy.
Kanaan led the race for seven laps before finishing third, his fifth career top-five finish at the Indy 500.
He's now sitting at ninth in the IndyCar standings with 113 points, 87 behind the leader Will Power.
Kanaan, winner of the 2004 IndyCar series, is certainly capable of coming back to contend with the guys at the top of the leaderboard. I'm expecting him to string together a series of top-10 finishes to steadily climb up the standings.
Briscoe's chances at capturing his first Indy 500 title looked great at first, as he started in pole position and led 15 laps.
Unfortunately, the young driver couldn't hold on to the lead, and he settled for fifth place. It was Briscoe's second career top-five finish at Indy, and his third top-10 performance this season.
He's currently sitting at eighth in the IndyCar standings, and if he continues to drive consistently and aggressively, he'll contend for the title at the end of the season.
