Analyzing Marco Andretti’s disappointing finish in today’s Indianapolis 500. In his seventh career start at Indianapolis, Andretti began the event on the inside of the second row, only to crash out of the event on lap 188 and finish 24th.
Andretti took the lead for the first time on lap 23 and led until the first set of pit stops, reinheriting the point when the lead cycled back through the field. All told, his 59 laps led would be the most of any driver. But he pit during the third caution, handing the lead to Scott Dixon, and would not reach the front again.
