"[It's] just such an extraordinary achievement," Judd said of Franchitti's three Indy 500 victories, according to the Los Angeles Times. "I am so proud of him."

Franchitti, who drank the traditional bottle of milk in Victory Lane after the win, donned white sunglasses during the race in tribute to Dan Weldon, the two-time Indy 500 winner who was killed in a crash last October in Las Vegas during the Indy 300.

Weldon's wife, Susie, reportedly went to Victory Lane to congratulate Franchitti. She also joined him and Judd for the traditional winner's lap around the track in the pace car, the Daily Mail reports.

Franchitti and Judd, who married in 2001, also posed with the Borg-Warner Trophy at the race's start/finish line Monday during the traditional winner photo session.
