2012 Indy 500 Live: Dario Franchitti Leads With 17 Laps Remaining As Caution Comes Out

Ed Carpenter's scrape with the wall in turn four has brought out the caution flag as the conclusion of the 2012 edition of the Indianapolis 500 nears its conclusion. With just 20 laps remaining, Dario Franchitti has secured the lead from Scott Dixon in a hot and heavy race with constant lead changes and pit stops aplenty.

Carpenter's scrape with the wall did no relevant damage and is now at the back of the pack. Unfortunately, Carpenter was performing admirably, as he was in 4th place at the time of the spin-out. The rest of the field now moves up and will furiously try and catch Franchitti. Dixon, Takuma Sato, Tony Kanaan trail the leader with just a few precious laps remaining.

We'll have an update on the winner shortly, so stay tuned.
