When you watch the Indy 500 live stream, you tune in to see if we can relive 2008. No, not for any particular trend or tech or milestone: Scott Dixon (who last won the race in 2008) won the pole and is looking to take home his second win at one of the biggest races of the year.

That said, a higher win count is in the eyes of one Helio Castroneves, the victor in 2021’s edition of the Indy 500 (his fourth). Castroneves would be the first to win the big race five times if he takes home first place this weekend. Unfortunately for him?

Dixon’s teammate Alex Palou, who is 2nd on the grid, is favored to finish in second place as well.

Oh, and speaking of those with needs for speed, Top Gun: Maverick (in theaters the Friday before the race) star Miles Teller has been selected to be the honorary starter for the big race.
