Justin Timberlake WINS Indy 500!!

5/29/2011 12:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Well ... Dan Wheldon was actually driving the winning car at this year's Indy 500, but Justin Timberlake's clothing line -- William Rast -- sponsored it.

Wheldon -- sporting William Rast on his chest and his #98 car -- took the checkers at Indy for the 2nd time in his career. He crossed the finish line seconds after rookie JR Hildebrand wrecked in front of him.

Timberlake hit his Twitter to celebrate right after the race ...

Is there anything JT can't do?

Dear Justin,

A bigger man congratulates the driver and his team. Keep that in mind for the next race.

Don't you think the driver of the car is who matters...not whose clothes he's wearing? Why would that even matter?

What's next, Justin? It's all because you're a sponsor that he won. Can't wait until Rogers Communications takes credit for the Canucks winning the cup.

At least he acknowledges the car he sponsors, unlike another "celebrity" I could name. Though he should've congratulated Dan, it's better than nothing at all.
Congrats to Wheldon!

ABC's coverage was terrible, 90% of their time talking about Danica Patrick who has never won an Indy race stateside. She was in 10th for a majority of the race and the announcers just babble on about her. She lead after other stopped for gas, no great driving moves or decisions on her part. Finished 10th. Good thing she is attractive, and I am sure her good looks help a sport no one cares about other than the Indy 500. Stay in Indy Car because you are gonna be a big looser in NASCAR. (Yeah, I know she won in Japan--re read what I wrote).

Karlew, LOL

I think it's going to take five. Canucks need assurance they can rip them past Thomas, he's no SLOUCH goalie LOL. I'll take five since it will put us at HOME for the win, hehehehe. (We can't take our first EVER Stanley Cup away HEHEHEHE)

Wow! What a bunch of mean, hate-filled jerks comment on here! JT is unbelievably talented and you can't blame the guy for being excited. God forbid he didn't choose his twitter words perfectly enough to impress the chumps that hate on him. Congrats to everyone involved in the race!!

The pure unsullied essence of JT that was infused into that car was why Dan Wheldon won, not his skill as a race car driver!
