Ashley Judd celebrated with her husband Dario Franchitti, after he won his third Indianapolis 500: “[It’s] just such an extraordinary achievement,” Judd said of Franchitti’s three Indy 500 victories, according to the Los Angeles Times. “I am so proud of him.”
The 44 year old actress joined her husband in the Victory Lane where she congratulated him with a kiss. They have been married since 2001.
Franchitti wore white sunglasses in honor of fallen race-car driver Dan Weldon, who lost his life last October, in a horrific crash. Wheldon won the Indy 500 last year making it twice in his career.
Franchitti said of Wheldon: “Everybody up there was a friend of Dan’s, and that about sums it up. Everybody loved him,” he said “I think D-Dub would be proud of that one.”
Susie the wife of the race-car driver congratulated Franchitti on his win and later joined the couple in the traditional winner’s lap.
