The 106th running of the Indianapolis 500 sees six-time IndyCar Series champion Scott Dixon on the pole
The sixth stop of the 2022 IndyCar series, and the most important race of the year, the 106th Indianapolis 500 takes the green flag today as the field of 33 drivers will chase the 2008 winner of this race Scott Dixon. The field contains eight former Indy 500 champions and seven drivers who are making their debuts in the famed race including seven-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson.
In last year's race, Helio Castroneves made history, becoming the fourth driver to win the race four times. He joined Rick Means, A.J. Foyt and Al Unser. Castroneves started in the middle of row three and led only 20 of the race's 200 laps, edging out Alex Palou and former Indy 500 champion Simon Pagenaud.
Through this season’s first five races, four different drivers have claimed victories with Josef Newgarden claiming wins at Texas and Long Beach. Despite the multiple wins, Newgarden is fourth in the points standings and will start today in the middle of row five.
Other former Indianapolis 500 champions in the field this week include Tony Kanaan, Takuma Sato, Will Power, Pagenaud, Alexander Rossi, Castroneves and Juan Pablo Montoya.
However, the Indy 500 is not just about pure speed. It's an endurance race, with ever-changing strategies and conditions, that tests the drivers and their teams at every chance it can. It is a race where a mistake can be made and you can still somehow end up in Victory Lane, or never recover from and wonder what could have been.
In the previous 105 events held, only 21 times has the driver who started first also finished first, including Dixon in 2008, his only Indy 500 victory. The last driver to do it was Simon Pagenaud in 2019.
The obvious driver to favor is Dixon. Not only has he won from the pole, his teammates at Chip Ganassi Racing have all proven to be consistently fast throughout the run up to the Indy 500. Alex Palou, defending series champion, will start next to Dixon in second, Marcus Ericsson starts fifth, 2013 winner Tony Kanaan sixth and Jimmie Johnson is on the fourth row on the grid in 12th.
Johnson could be the surprise here. He has been quick since his car rolled off the transporter, and was third fastest on the Monday following qualifying, when the teams moved the cars from qualifying trim to race setup. It is also interesting to note that Palou set the quickest pace followed by Dixon, giving Ganassi Racing the top three spots. Johnson had his best finish in the series at the Texas oval back in March, running sixth.
The sentimental favorite is Helio Castroneves, who is the defending champion and is going for a record-breaking fifth win at the Brickyard. He has the guile to get it done, but is starting from deep in the field in the 27th spot. While luck is a factor in every winner of the Indy 500, it may be that Castroneves would simply need too much of it for the race to fall into his lap.
