Start time, lineup, live stream, TV information for the 106th running at Indianapolis

“The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” is just hours away as Indianapolis Motor Speedway brings back a packed house for 106th running of the Indianapolis 500.

After two years of reduced capacity due to the COVID pandemic, the stands and infield will once again be full to witness the Memorial Day weekend mainstay with the possibility that history could be made on more than one front.

After Scott Dixon breaks record for fastest pole-qualifying speed last weekend and combined with Alex Pala and Rinus VeeKay fastest first lap in Indy 500 history, there is a chance that the race record speed will be broken on Sunday as well. And as it turns out, so the record was set last year by Helio Castroneveswho will chase more history on Sunday.

Castroneves won the 2021 Indy 500 with an average winning speed of 190.690 mph, besting the 187.433 mph average posted by 2013 winner Tony Kanaan. And this victory placed Castroneves in one of the most famous racing clubs. He joined AJ Foyt, Al Unser Sr. and Rick Mears as the only drivers to win the 500 four times. Can Castroneves get back to back and betting on his claim as the best driver in Indy history?
