Welcome to IndyStar's live coverage of the 2022 Indianapolis 500.
This is the 106th running of the Greatest Spectacle in Racing on the 2½-mile oval at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. That's 200 laps of high-speed racing under a forecast of sunny skies and temperatures in the low 80s.
Our experts, Nathan Brown, Rob Peeters, Gregg Doyel, Wilson Moore and Matt Glenesk, will feed live updates from the action all day to this page — please remember to refresh for the latest.
Many are wondering if we will see a first-time winner. While much has been made about NASCAR legend Jimmie Johnson’s entry into the race, three of the top four currently in the IndyCar standings have not won at Indianapolis. Alex Palou, currently second behind Will Power, is hoping to better his second-place finish to Castroneves last year.
While everyone loves to guess who might come away victorious in The Greatest Spectacle in Racing, all eyes will be on Helio Castroneves, as he will try and make history at The Brickyard. The Brazilian driver kissed the bricks in 2021, marking the fourth time he has won the Indy 500 in his career. That tied him with the legends A.J. Foyt, Rick Mears and Al Unser. Castroneves will look to become the first driver to win the race five times, 21 years after his first victory.
To say that Scott Dixon has put 32 problems behind him is one way to look at starting from the pole position for the Indianapolis 500. It's a nice position to be in as it means you start in command of the race and clean air in front of you, if you can hold off the other two cars starting on the front row with you.
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.
Each of the last six winners will be competing in the race on Sunday, including Japan’s Takuma Sato, who won the race in 2017 and 2020. Current IndyCar Series points leader Will Power is looking to win the big race for the second time in his career, as he took home the checkered flag in 2018.
The 2008 Indy 500 winner is this year's favorite after his 4-lap run of 234.046 mph, the second-fastest qualifying effort in race history. His five pole starts are one behind the record established by Rick Mears.
The Dixon family cautiously celebrated the achievement. His race win came from the pole, but Emma Davies Dixon knows starting first guarantees nothing.
