Honda took the 2020 Indy 500 by storm last month, dominating the field to celebrate its 13th victory at the oval. The carmaker claimed the top four spots in the race, with Takuma Sato taking the lead for the brand.
Before the final pit stops, the Indy 500 was led by Scot Dixon, who was driving a Chip Ganassi Racing Honda. He was leading by 111 laps, looking for a second Indy 500 victory —but Takuma Sato made a bold move in the final stage of the race to take the win.
Both Sato and his teammate Graham Rahal closed the gap between the lead pair, earning the second and third place after Rossi crashed. Then, Sato followed Dixon closely, eventually passing him on the 185th lap. Despite Dixon’s attempts to overtake Sato, the latter managed to stay in the front.
The race ended under the caution flag in lap 196 rather than 200, due to Spencer Pigot’s hard crash that occurred at the exit of turn four. Because Sato was in the lead at this time, he was named the victor.
Rahal took third place after Dixon, while Santino Ferrucci celebrated fourth after progressing from 19th place with Vasser-Sullivan Honda.
