Nearly doubling his payday from his first Indianapolis 500 triumph 15 years ago, Juan Pablo Montoya earned almost $2.5 million for his victory in Sunday’s 99th edition of the Greatest Spectacle in Racing.

The first-place share was $2,449,055 from an overall purse of $13,397,315. Runner-up Will Power, Montoya’s teammate, earned $792,555, and third-place finisher Charlie Kimball took $564,055. Scott Dixon, Kimball’s Chip Ganassi Racing teammate, earned $615,805 for fouth, including a $100,000 bonus for the pole position.

Montoya earned $1,235,690 in 2000 when he won the Indianapolis 500-Mile Race in his first start. The 15-year gap between the Team Penske driver’s two Indy 500 victories is the longest for a winner. The total purse for the 2000 race was $9,473,505.
