List of Indianapolis 500-mile race winners

Indy 500 winnings

From 1958 to 1992, A.J. Foyt didn’t miss a single running of the Indianapolis 500, competing in 35 straight races. He holds the record for the most career starts and also has four career victories at The 500.

Best finish by a female driver

As a rookie driver in 2005, Danica Patrick became the first female driver in Indianapolis 500 history to lead laps during the race. After qualifying fourth, she also finished fourth, the highest finish ever in the race for a female.

Most career laps led

From 1965-1990 and again from 1992-1993, Al Unser was a starter in the Indianapolis 500. During that time, he led a record 644 laps at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Most career races led

Thirteen times in the 35 Indianapolis 500 races in which he competed, A.J. Foyt raced his way to the lead. No other driver in Indy 500 history has been up front in that many races.

Fewest laps led by a winner / Most laps led by a loser

When Ralph DePalma overtook Teddy Tetzlaff on the third lap in 1912, he amassed an advantage that looked unbeatable. With a five-and-a-half lap, 11-minute lead, his car lost all power at the end of the backstretch on lap 199. He and his riding mechanic jumped out to push it the five-eighths of a mile to the finish line, but Joe Dawson passed them for the win. DePalma’s 196 laps led are the most of any losing driver in a single race, while Dawson’s two laps led are the fewest in a single race by any winner.

Most laps led by a rookie

En route to winning the Indianapolis 500 in 2000, Juan Pablo Montoya led 167 of 200 laps. No other rookie has ever dominated an Indy 500 race like that. Montoya became the first rookie to win the race since 1966.
