The Indy 500 is this weekend, so why not catch up on some of the greatest Indy 500s of the past? The 76th Indy 500, held in 1992, was full of amazing action and the closest finish in Indy 500 history. Luckily, the entire race is available to watch on YouTube for free.

Michael Andretti dominated most of the race, leading 160 laps and gapping second place by 30 seconds before the fuel pump on his car failed with eleven laps remaining. Al Unser, Jr. would take the checkered flag, beating out Canadian Scott Goodyear by just 0.043 seconds—the closest finish in the race's 101-year history.

The 1992 Indy 500 also marked the final race for legends such as A.J. Foyt, four-time Indy winner Rick Mears, 1983 Indy winner Tom Sneva, and two-time Indy winner Gordon Johncock.

If you want to get straight to the action, the race begins at the 47:50 mark.
