The 96th running of the Indianapolis 500 is ready to run on a hot Sunday afternoon at the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Chevrolet has made a strong return to the Brickyard this year, supplying engines for all of the cars in the first two rows, including pole sitter Ryan Briscoe who will lead the field of 33 cars across the bricks around noon local time. Then the top cars will see if those engines can hold up for all 500 miles in a race that demands skill, endurance and luck from the winning driver. Target Chip Ganassi Racing cars driven by Dario Franchitti and Scott Dixon are powered by Honda and showed on Carb Day that they will be a factor when all of the cars are dialed in for the race.
Soon we will find out which car and drive can best manage the 500 miles to make an appearance on Victory Lane for the swig of milk.
