Party Time: Indy 500 is biggest sporting event of pandemic
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indianapolis 500 will open its gates to 135,000 spectators on Sunday for the largest sporting event since the start of the pandemic.
Its about 40% of attendance and leaves 100,000 empty seats in the permanent grandstands. Scott Dixon will start from the pole alongside two of IndyCar’s rising stars. Colton Herta is a 21-year-old budding American star and Rinus Veekay at 20 is IndyCar’s most recent winner.
The race includes nine former Indy 500 winners but a changing of the guard toward younger drivers has made a new winner a real possibility.
