Kentucky - Race results

2 October 2011

After coming so close to winning the last two Kentucky Indy 300 races, this year Ed Carpenter found himself racing to the chequered flag side-by-side for the last 22 laps with Ganassi Racing's Dario Franchitti in the nail-biting finish of the season to date - and it ended in the sixth closest finish in the series' history.

This time the glory finally went to Carpenter, who clinched it by just 0.0098s at the line. He joined his equally emotional team owner Sarah Fisher (and her two-week-old daughter Zoey) in victory lane for the first time in his IndyCar racing career.

Dario Franchitti had to settle for second place, but with Will Power colliding with Ana Beatriz in the pits early in the race and sustaining major sidepod damage, the runners-up spot was enough to put Dario back in the lead in the championship by 18pts going into the final round of the 2011 season at Las Vegas in two weeks time.
