Dario Franchitti is in very heady company in IndyCar.

Currently tied with Sebastien Bourdais and Paul Tracy for seventh on the all-time wins list, one more victory would move Franchitti up a notch — with the other drivers ahead of him named Foyt, Andretti and Unser.

And if that win comes Sunday in the Indianapolis 500, Franchitti would move into a very exclusive club. He'd join A.J. Foyt, Al Unser Sr. and Rick Mears as the only four-time winners of "The Greatest Spectacle In Racing."
