Dario Franchitti wins IRL Chicagoland race on good pit strategy

Actress Ashley Judd’s husband, Dario Franchitti’s pit strategy paid off, in helping him win the IndyCar series race at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Illinois Saturday night.

There was a caution with 31 laps to go, which allowed all leaders to make a final pit stop.

Franchitti’s crew gambled by not changing any tires during the final pit stop, gaining eight spots in the pits and sending him out in the race lead.

It was a very rough night for IRL series points leader Will Power, who was running amongst the leaders when he abruptly went to pit road for an extra fuel stop with five laps left in the race. He ended up finishing a disappointing 16th. Franchitti was trailing Power at the start of the race by 59 points in the standings.

Rounding out the top five, Dan Wheldon came in second, followed by Marco Andretti, Ryan Hunter-Reay and Tony Kanaan.
