INDIANAPOLIS - Four Indianapolis 500 winners will try to qualify for this year's race.
There are 35 driver-car combinations listed among the entrants for the race’s centennial celebration on May 29. The 83-car list is the highest total since 2002.
Past winners trying to make this year’s traditional 33-car field are three-time winner Helio Castroneves, two-time winner and defending champ Dario Franchitti and former series points champs Scott Dixon and Dan Wheldon.
Hot Wheels is bringing its miniature world to life at this year’s Indianapolis 500.
The toy brand that produces everything from tiny cars to customized tracks will install a 100-foot door with an attached orange ramp at the historic speedway — hoping to break the world record jump by a four-wheel vehicle.
Organizers say it will take three weeks to put the impressive feat of engineering into place.
