Justin Timberlake Wins 'Indianapolis 500'

British racer Dan Wheldon won the Indy 500 competition today
We already knew Justin Timberlake could sing, dance and act.

Today he went out and won the Indianapolis 500!

The star’s William Rast clothing line sponsored Indy 500 champ Dan Wheldon’s winning car at the 100th anniversary of the country’s most historic automobile race.

“What a Memorial Day weekend!” tweeted Timberlake after Wheldon took the checkered flag. “The William Rast car just won the Indy 500!!!!”

However, it wasn’t until two hours after the finish – and Timberlake’s celebratory tweet – that Wheldon was officially declared the winner, following a video review.

After it was 100% confirmed, Timberlake announced, “Congrats to Dan Wheldon, the WR racing team and everyone else who put in the hard work for this victory! Unreal!”
