In his 113th IZOD IndyCar Series race, Ed Carpenter broke his victory maiden – edging IZOD IndyCar Series championship front-runner Dario Franchitti by a nose. Carpenter was thankful he had one Honda push to pass available on the final lap after dueling Franchitti for 21 laps in which they weren’t separated by more than two-tenths of a second. Carpenter pushed and likely willed the No. 67 Dollar General car to the start/finish line to edge Franchitti by 0.0098 of a second — the sixth-closest race in IZOD IndyCar Series and the closest ever at Kentucky Speedway.
