Indianapolis 500

Racing's Greatest Show

Racecars at the Indianapolis 500 make their way around the track

For the 92nd year this Memorial Day, 33 drivers will take the green flag at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the greatest spectacle in racing. With the reunification of open-wheel racing in the U.S., more drivers will try to qualify for this race, making the day a nail biter. While defending champion Dario Franchitti has moved on to NASCAR, expect drivers from the Target-Chip Ganassi, Penske or Andretti-Green camps to dish out stiff competition for the grand prize. If you can’t make it to the race, practice and qualifying days are open to the public, and those days often provide easier access to the garages and drivers.
