How Well Do You Know the Indianapolis 500?


As the Indianapolis 500 begins it’s second hundred race tenure, the 101st running this Sunday will set a baseline for the future while not forgetting about the event’s glorious past.

There are plenty of storylines in this race, from defending winner Alexander Rossi to the highly-publicized entry of two-time Formula One champ Fernando Alonso, who had never raced on an oval track like Indianapolis Motor Speedway before this month.

And yet there’s Alonso in the middle of Row 2 in Sunday’s starting lineup and a legitimate contender to make history.

There’s also Helio Castroneves’ bid for a fourth Indy 500 win, which would put him in arguably the most exclusive club in motorsports as the only four-time winners of the 500: A.J. Foyt, Al Unser and Rick Mears.

Will Marco Andretti finally become only the second Andretti to ever win at Indianapolis – and the first time in nearly 50 years (his grandfather, Mario, won in 1969)?

But even with all these future stories, there’s also time to reflect on the past history of the largest single-day sporting event in the world.  So, with that, we bring you this five questions about the Greatest Spectacle’s glorious past.

Good Luck!
