Scott Dixon came away with pole position, yielding more winners than any other starting position in the previous 105 races of the race. 21 of the 105 winners started from pole position. He is not the favorite for nothing.

Helio Castrovance who became the fourth four-time winner of the Indy 500 with his win last year, has history in his sights on Sunday. He would set the record for most wins at the Indy 500 if he can get his fifth win. Castrovance has big chances at +2200, and he will have to work out of the 9th row after qualifying. Racers who start past 23rd have produced only four overall winners in race history, so his chances are slim.

A well-known name for racing fans, NASCAR legend Jimmy Johnson makes his IndyCar debut on Sunday at age 46. While IndyCar will be new to him, Indianapolis Motor Speedway is not – Johnson has four wins in the Brickyard 400. Johnson will start on the outside of row 4 after kissing the wall in his qualifying. Johnson is one of the most legendary racers to ever hit the track – and I’m not one to count him in his latest venture.
