Indy Car: Dario Franchitti Wins Firestone Indy 300 & Series Title

The tightly spaced, closely fought, three way battle for the Indy Car Series Championship finally ended over the weekend at Homestead Miami.  Less than 10 points separated the top three drivers Scott Dixon, Dario Franchitti, and Ryan Briscoe.  The number crunchers were going mad figuring out all the different mathmatical possibilies of how the top three could play out in the last race of the season.  However for Dario it was pretty simple: win the race.  A victory for Dario was the only way he could lock out the other two and take the title for the second time since 2007.  Due to an alternate fuel strategy and the first race in Indy Car Series history with no yellow flags Dario was able to do just what he needed to do…win.  It was a heck of a way to end the season.  Check out the videos below for highlights and a post-race interview with Dario then let the silly season begin!
