Indy 500 checkers: Franchitti wins the raceThe race was interrupted by rain for three hours and then, after a restart, was stopped after 166 of the scheduled 200 laps.

Franchitti was given the odds to win the Indianapolis 500 of 10/1 according to Bodog Sports, an online bookmaker. He is racing for Andretti Green Racing drivers, and won the Indy 500 with pit strategy, rather than fast driving. Kanaan appeared to have the race in his hands when rain poured down the first time on lap 112, just four laps after he took the lead with a pass on Andretti. Andretti's car had an accident shortly after and flipped over, but the driver was able to climb out uninjured.

This is the first win for Franchitti this year. In 2007 he had taken three top-5s and four top-10s, with total earnings before the Indy 500 of a little over $315,000.
