How to watch the 105th Indianapolis 500 (05/30/21) | Chain, flow, time
It is one of the greatest races, if not the greatest in the sport itself. For the 105th time, the 33 fastest Indy cars will travel to the racing capital of the world on Sunday to see who will consecrate their legacy and win the Indianapolis 500.
This year’s field sees a mixed number of veterans and alumni, as well as new faces that seem to burst onto the scene. Of the 33 cars, nine of them won the 500. Helio Castroneves, who starts in the middle of the third row, has the most wins among all current drivers with three. He seeks to become the fourth driver to win the race four times, more than any other driver, meeting AJ Foyt, Al Unser Sr. and Rick Mears with this distinction.
