Brandon Traino Wins Third Straight iRacing Indianapolis 500

Brandon Traino Wins Third Straight iRacing Indianapolis 500

For the record-extending third year in a row, Brandon Traino is the winner of the top split of the iRacing Indianapolis 500 for 2021. After using a win in the Friday split to get ready for the big show, the real-world tire changer for Joe Gibbs Racing posted a dominant performance saw him lead 122 of the race’s 200 laps on the way to a .272-second victory over teammate and polesitter Michele Costantini.

Traino immediately took the lead from Costantini at the start of the race, setting the stage for an exciting battle throughout the day between the duo. Costantini would reclaim the top spot on Lap 22 to lead the first of his 52 laps up front, but would give up the lead for good to Traino on Lap 188. Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup front-runner Zac Campbell would lead six laps of his own on the way to completing the podium.

19 of the 33 drivers in the top split finished on the lead lap, including a top five separated by under three seconds. Just four cautions slowed the pace, with more than 90 green-flag laps at the end of the race emboldening drivers to push different pit strategies in hopes of stealing the top split win. All told, there were 31 lead changes on the day, with six different drivers spending time up front.

Beyond the top split, iRacers combined for 82 different splits of this year’s Indy 500 across four different time slots. Congratulations to all of this year’s winners!
