(INDIANAPOLIS) -- Rookie Alexander Rossi has won the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500.
The 24-year-old American driver from California managed to pull a victory from Carlos Munoz and Josef Newgarden, despite running out of fuel on the last lap.
"I have no idea how we pulled that off," Rossi said after his car was towed to the victory lane.
Rossi, who was driving for car owner Bryan Herta and the Andretti Autosport team, spent the past several years racing in Europe's Formula One.
"I'll cherish the fact that at one point we were 33rd and we rolled the dice and we came through and we made it happen," he said.
