2023 Writers’ Roundtable, Vol. 21: Indy 500 Winner?

Today’s question: Who will win the 107th Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge?. Not only did Palou have the fastest car in qualifying, he learned a massive amount about winning the race in 2021 while chasing Helio Castroneves to the finish line. It’s not a stretch to say he could have won either of the those two “500s.” One other point: The pole winner has won “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” nearly 20 percent of the time (21 of 106). Pole sitter Alex Palou looks like the odds-on favorite, and 2008 Indy 500 winner Scott Dixon has been the most dominant driver each of the past three years but failed to find Victory Lane. The driver starting third has won this race 13 times, second-most in the event’s history. But here’s a fact: Foyt’s team won’t need divine intervention to win this race.
