1988 Indianapolis 500


1988 Indianapolis 500

Results of the 1988 Indianapolis 500 held at Indianapolis on Sunday, May 29, 1988.

Recap

Roger Penske's team dominated the month, qualifying all three teammates Rick Mears, Danny Sullivan and Al Unser on the front row. Their cars have unique solid wheels instead of the conventional spoke designs used on most of the other cars. On race day the three teammates combine to lead 192 laps. Sullivan dominates the first half, but then hits the south short-chute wall on lap 102, after his front wing adjusters slip, robbing the car of steering capability. Mears, at one point more than a lap down, takes the lead nine laps later, and outlasts Unser and Emerson Fittipaldi to take the checkered flag, his third career Indy victory.
