1991 Indianapolis 500

Results of the 1991 Indianapolis 500 held at Indianapolis on Sunday, May 26, 1991.

Recap

Morning rains delayed the start by 55 minutes. Michael Andretti led Rick Mears by 15 seconds when a caution flag flies on lap 182. 'Luck' appears to be going Andretti's way as he is able to make it to the pits for fuel under the yellow, while Mears lined up as the leader. Andretti then completes a daring pass around the outside of Mears into turn 1 on the restart. Exactly one lap later, Mears repeats the move on Andretti, passing him on the outside of turn one to re-take the lead. Another caution does not alter the result as Mears powers away again to his record-tying fourth Indianapolis 500 Victory, tying A.J Foyt and Al Unser, Sr. This was also Mears 4th win at the brickyard in 12 years.
