INDIANAPOLIS – Heading into Sunday’s 102nd Running of the Indianapolis 500 (11 a.m. ET/ABC/INDYCAR Radio Network) the easy group of favorites to pick would be the Andretti Autosport.

This weekend, Andretti will look to win their fourth Indy 500 in the last five years. Ryan Hunter-Reay got it all started when he narrowly beat Helio Castroneves in 2014. Alexander Rossi clutch and coasted to a win in the 100th Running…

INDIANAPOLIS – It’s hard to believe, but as we head to Sunday’s 102nd Running of the Indianapolis 500 (11 a.m. ET/ABC/INDYCAR Radio Network) neither of the two Chip Ganassi Racing drivers have led a lap through the first five races of the Verizon IndyCar Series season.

Power Turning Into Quite The Oval Racer, Eyeing Indianapolis 500 (11 a.m. ET/ABC/INDYCAR Radio Network) Triumph

INDIANAPOLIS – Forgive those who overlook Will Power as a favorite to win Sunday’s 102nd Running of the Indianapolis 500 (11 a.m. ET/ABC/INDYCAR Radio Network) at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
