Dale Coyne Racing’s Santino Ferrucci in the No.19 Cly Del Honda was named 2019 Indianapolis 500 Rookie of the Year at last night’s Victory Celebration at the JW Marriott in Downtown Indianapolis.

Ferrucci started Sunday’s race from 23rd place and came through the field to finish the race in seventh place and took home $50,000 and speaking following the celebration he said:

To be honest, it’s finally sinking in,” expressed Ferrucci. “You can only win Indy 500 Rookie of the Year once. That hadn’t occurred to me until now. It’s quite an honor. I can’t thank the team enough for giving me such a fantastic car the whole month. I was comfortable in the car all month and I think as a rookie that’s really important. Thank you to Honda, Firestone, and Cly-Del Manufacturing who has been behind me through everything that’s happened in the last few years.
