NOW: Australian driver Will Power wins 102nd Indianapolis 500

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - The eyes of the sports world were once again on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sunday for the 102nd running of the Indy 500.

In the end, Will Power crossed the yard of bricks to capture his first victory at the famous race.

“I just screamed like I’ve never screamed before," Power said after his celebration. "It was just amazing. The last two laps, seeing the white flag and the checkers. It’s just – you can’t explain it.”

Indianapolis native Ed Carpenter began the day in pole position and led for much of the afternoon, but settled for second place.

“You never know how these races are going to unfold, but I thought for the most part, the team executed well," said Carpenter. "There’s only a couple little things that maybe could’ve made a difference, but Will won the race and we ended up 2nd. We’ll be happy with that and come back stronger next year.”
