Indy 500 Results: Leaderboard, Payout and Recap of 2013 Race

Tony Kanaan will take home $2.35 million after winning the 97th running of the Indianapolis 500, according to Jeff Olsen of USA Today.

The highly anticipated race lived up to the hype and more at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on May 26.

Kanaan finally captured a victory at the Greatest Spectacle in Racing for the first time after 12 attempts. He found himself on the right side of a caution flag that flew with just three laps to go.

The Indianapolis 500 Motor Speedway shared the sight of Kanaan’s victory (via Twitter):

Three-time winner Dario Franchitti hit Turn 1’s barrier after a Lap 197 restart and Kanaan cruised to the checkered flag under the resulting caution.

Kanaan led for 34 laps but it was Ed Carpenter, who finished in 10th place, who led for the longest of the 500-mile race (37 laps).

Prior to the race, ESPN’s Lindsay Czarniak tweeted the list of milk each driver requested for victory lane.

Once there, Kanaan finally got his milk celebration. He didn’t waste a drop—unless of course you count the plethora of milk all over his face. Paul Nisely of Sporting News provided (via Twitter) a classic shot of this year’s winner enjoying his victory lane milk, 2 percent, of course.

After trying to win this colossal event for so long, it was no wonder Kanaan was so emotional following his impressive performance.

IndyCar points leader Marco Andretti, a race favorite, ended up finishing in fourth place. American Ryan Hunter-Reay came in third behind second-place finisher Carlos Munoz.

Other big-name finishes include Helio Castrovenes, who ended up in sixth place, and Justin Wilson, who finished behind Andretti in fifth.

Payout Info

Leading up to the race, we knew there was going to be a big payday for whoever ended up drinking the milk in Indianapolis. The winning share was reported to be over $2.5 million, according to Jeremy Brilliant of WTHR Indiana.

Total race winnings, according to Brilliant, were set to increase by over 25 percent to reach about $13.4 million. However, winnings are dependent on attendance and the numbers ended up being less in the end.

Kanaan's $2.35 million purse was significantly less than the amount projected, but you would hard pressed to find the winner complain about his payday. Dario Franchitti took home $2.47 million after winning the race in 2012 and $2.75 million for his victory in 2010.

Here's a complete list of notable payouts from the 2013 race, according to Racer.com:

 

Finish Driver Money
1 Tony Kanaan $2,353,355
2 Carlos Munoz $964,205
3 Ryan Hunter-Reay $583,005
4 Marco Andretti $469,755
5 Justin Wilson $337,805
6 Helio Castroneves $313,755
10 Ed Carpenter $405,955

*Carpenter received a $100,000 bonus for being the race's polesitter.

Kanaan may be just seventh in total points in 2013 but he wouldn't trade anything for his victory in Indianapolis. The win may help him build momentum to catch Marco Andretti, but he will be content, for now, to relish this massive accomplishment.

Carlos Munoz, a 21-year-old rookie, isn't high up on this year's point standings. However, his performance was admirable and worthy of mention. The 2013 Indy 500 was his debut performance and he nearly stole the show out of the gates of his promising career.
