Indy driver Juan Pablo Montoya has won the 2015 Indianapolis 500 — his second career victory.
Montoya overcame a less than mediocre week of practice and a rough start to the race — he fell back as far as 30th — to power his way up to the front and stay there.
With 10 Laps to go, Will Power and pole sitter Scott Dixon were battling up front with Montoya sitting in third.
After a few failed attempts to get around Dixon, Montoya finally found an opening and moved past both, gaining the lead on Lap 198.
