Will Power will take a bit more $2.5 million from the prize fund of the 102nd Running of Indianapolis 500 as the winner in the race.

Power became the first Australian winner of the Indianapolis 500, capturing his first victory in “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing”. He beat pole sitter Ed Carpenter to the finish by 3.1589 seconds to score 17th Indy 500 victory for Team Penske.

Carpenter earned $911,504 for his career-best “500” finish. He led a race-high 65 laps, also a best among his 15 career starts.

2008 Indianapolis 500 winner Scott Dixon earned $587,129 for finishing third.

“Man, I just can’t believe it. I changed my attitude a lot after Barber. Very positive, I had a great month. I just can’t believe it. I’ve got to thank Roger Penske, Verizon and my parents for allowing me to get to this point. I just can’t describe it. Feel like collapsing, want to cry. I couldn’t stop screaming. I can’t believe it”, Power said right after the race.

“(On the last restart) I’m like, ‘I have to get these guys.’ I don’t know how much fuel they got, but this is the restart of my life. And then I go on, and the two (Stefan Wilson and Jack Harvey) pit, and I’m like, ‘Man, I think I’m going to win this!’ I was screaming with one to go. Man, I got this. Unbelievable. I was wondering if I was ever going to win it, and thoughts went through my mind during the month like that. In my career, I’ve had so many wins, so many poles. But everyone always talks about the ‘500’. And I won it. I just couldn’t imagine winning a race in front of a crowd like this, this many people. It’s just amazing. What an event. I love it.”
