Indy 500 Final Results Include Oriol Servia, Scott Dixon Switch

Most of the race results as announced shortly after the Indianapolis 500 held true through a Sunday evening review of the caution situation surrounding near-winner J.D. Hildebrand's last-corner crash, but the final and official box score did include one significant change.

Oriol Servia slipped from fifth to sixth, swapping spots with Scott Dixon. While Hildebrand's crash put $1.5 million more in winner Dan Wheldon's pocket than would've arrived otherwise, this post-race adjustment has a financial impact of its own.

In addition to the bonus he accrued by leading for more laps than any other driver, Dixon will also earn a better final payout for moving up a position.
