Josef Newgarden passes Marcus Ericsson on final lap to win Indianapolis 500

May 29, 2023

The milk is on Josef Newgarden.

The Team Penske driver sped past Marcus Ericsson on the final lap of the Indianapolis 500 to win the race for the first time in his career.

After a third red flag, Ericsson lined up and got off to a big lead as he took the white flag. But Newgarden was on his tail and made a shrewd move to pass Ericsson and held him off the rest of the way. It was his best finish since he took third in 2016.
