Profiles of the 33 drivers in Sunday's Indianapolis 500, in starting order with car number in parentheses, age, hometown, engine, race team, four-lap qualification average and biographical information (w-former winner; r-rookie; all chassis Dallara):
This Indianapolis 500 already has plenty of drama: panic over the size of the field, engine shortages, legal wrangling and issues with underperforming Lotus. Toss in $275,000 worth of fines against 13 teams, and IndyCar has a real soap opera bubbling right before its biggest race.
Jay Penske risked his whole Indianapolis 500 race program on finding two new engines before qualifying began.
IndyCar CEO Randy Bernard is an optimist when it comes to putting 33 cars in this year's Indianapolis 500.
Katherine Legge returned to America to race in the Indianapolis 500.
Dragon Racing's legal battle with engine manufacturer Lotus may keep the team off the track Thursday at Indianapolis.
Dragon Racing has sued Lotus for at least $4.6 million in damages, accusing the engine manufacturer of damaging its reputation by spreading "especially outrageous" falsehoods about the IndyCar team while failing to deliver two chassis and hurting its ability to be competitive.
Scott Speed wants to become the first American to start all three auto races at Indianapolis and he's hoping to become the first $5 million man, too.
Ho-Pin Tung will try to become the first Chinese driver to start the Indianapolis 500 when qualifying begins May 21.
Co-owners Sam Schmidt and Jay Penske say Tung will drive the No. 8 car for Schmidt Dragon Racing.
"As one of America's finest open-wheel racers, Scott's past experience in Formula One and NASCAR make him a serious contender at this year's Indy 500 and at the IndyCar Challenge in Las Vegas," Penske said.
