Simon Pagenaud just became the first French driver to win the Indianapolis 500 in more than a century.
Pagenaud was triumphant Sunday afternoon after driving 200 laps around the 2.5-mile track, equaling 500 miles.
He had earned the top qualifying spot with a speed of 229.992 mph.
Rene Thomas was the last Frenchman to win the race, pulling off a victory in 1914.
Several other drivers had sought to cement their names in history during the 103rd running of the race.
Helio Castroneves had three Indy wins to his name. A fourth win at the Brickyard would have put him among elite company alongside A.J. Foyt, Al Unser Sr. and Rick Mears as the only drivers to win the coveted Borg-Warner Trophy four times.
Will Power, the 2018 Indy 500 winner had hoped to become one of only six drivers, including Castroneves and Unser, to win back-to-back races.
For the first time, NBC aired "the greatest spectacle in racing" with Mike Tirico, former NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. and eight-time Indy 500 starter Danica Patrick calling the race.
