Indy 500 2024 complete results: Newgarden wins in DRAMATIC final-lap battle after chaotic race

Josef Newgarden became the first driver in over two decades to win back-to-back Indy 500 races on Sunday, after one of the most dramatic events in years.

Newgarden was being shadowed closely by Pato O'Ward in the final stages of the race, the Mexican holding his overtake in an attempt to avoid being re-passed before the finish line.

In the event, O'Ward made his move with four corners and 2.5 miles to go - a move which proved his undoing, as Newgarden retook the lead on the back straight to win his second straight race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The race featured a record 16 different leaders, with O'Ward making a race-high 43 on-track passes on his way to second place, after which he was visibly distraught having also finished as a runner-up in 2022.

Storm delays Indy 500 start

The start of the race was delayed by around four hours by a storm in the Indianapolis area, and fans were treated to an incredibly dramatic open - a three-car collision causing a caution on the very first lap.

Meanwhile, Kyle Larson's attempt to drive the Memorial Day double of Indy 500 and Coca-Cola 600 was thwarted by the delayed start, and a penalty for speeding on pit road led to an underwhelming 18th pace finish.

Among the former F1 drivers in the race, 47-year-old Takuma Sato finished 14th and was followed home by Romain Grosjean in 19th.
