Dario Franchitti and his wife, actress Ashley Judd celebrated Franchitti's big win at the Indianapolis 500 on May 27, thanking fans on their official Twitter accounts on May 28 and posting for photos with Franchitti's trophy. It was Franchitti's third time winning the big race and he became the 10th driver in the 96 years of Indianapolis to win three or more 500s. "ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?! Wow," Judd Tweeted after her husband won the race, along with a photo of herself drinking the celebratory bottle of milk. On May 28, the actress posted another photo of herself on Twitter on the racetrack saying, "My Indiana Home! Thank you@dariofranchitti @tcgrteams @ims &@IndyCar for the memories of a lifetime." The race also paid tribute to last year's Indy 500 winner Dan Wheldon, who died in a car crash during a race in October in the IndyCar season finale. Franchitti dedicated his win to Wheldon. Wheldon's wife, Susie, sat next to Judd in the backseat of the convertible for the victory lap around the 2.5-mile racetrack. "It meant the world to be to have hold hands with and have my arm around Susie Wheldon's waist on the Victor's Parade Lap," Judd Tweeted to a follower on May 28. "I'm very proud of the achievements, whether it's Indy wins, championships, every one of the race wins," Franchitti said, according to the Associated Press. "Sometimes I look back, but generally I'm trying to look forward. When I retire, that's the time to look back." On Monday, the couple posed for photos with the Borg-Warner Trophy during the traditional winner photo session at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis. Judd and the Scottish race car driver married in December 2001. The couple has no children but own two dogs together. Judd, who is known for roles in films like "Kiss the Girls" and "Double Jeopardy," is the daughter of country music singer Naomi Judd and half-sister of Wynonna Judd. She recently starred in the ABC series "Missing" but the show was not renewed for a second season.
