Running on fumes, Target Chip Ganassi Racing driver Dario Franchitti and team owner Chip Ganassi celebrate after winning the 94th running of the Indianapolis 500.

Dario Franchitti was finally first after 500 miles in the Indianapolis 500, even though he was already an Indy 500 champion in 2007.

Franchitti’s victory three years ago came in a race shortened by rain and flagged after 166 laps.

There was no chance of rain Sunday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Franchitti drove a flawless race, dominating by leading most of the race before having to conserve fuel to make it to the finish.

The race ended with a spectacular crash between Ryan Hunter-Reay and Mike Conway in the north chute between Turns 3 and 4 on the final lap. Conway’s car went airborne and ripped into the fence before landing upside-down on the race track in one of the most spectacular crashes in recent Indy 500 history.

Check out a spectacular photo of the crash after the jump.
