Officials Revise Indy 500 Finish Order
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- IndyCar officials have changed the order of the Indy 500 finish, moving Marco Andretti from sixth to third place.

Alex Lloyd moves down one spot to fourth. Scott Dixon moves from fourth to fifth, and Danica Patrick drops from fifth to sixth.

The top two places did not change. Dario Franchitti beat Dan Wheldon for his second Indy 500 victory.

The decision comes more than two hours after the raced ended. Video review showed three cars passed Andretti after the caution flag came out on Lap 199.

Dale Coyne, who owns Lloyd's car, said his team would not protest the revised finish order.

Officials also flipped the order of 13th and 14th. Mario Romancini moves up one spot to 13th, while Simona de Silvestro falls to 14th.
