Inside Line: Biggest Indy 500 Open Test Curiosity?

Today’s question: Which driver are you most looking forward to seeing at the Indy 500 Open Test next week?. Yes, we’ve already seen the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series champion on the oval at IMS in an INDYCAR SERIES car. But when Larson passed the Rookie Orientation Program at Indianapolis Motor Speedway last fall and tested at Phoenix in February, he was driving the only car on the track. The Indianapolis 500 Open Test is with nearly everyone else who will be vying for an Indy 500 starting spot, and all comparisons will be apples to apples. This team is too good for that to happen again, and if RLL can play in the same neighborhood as teams with strong IMS and oval programs, then I think that could be the launchpad for elite-level stardom for Lundgaard, who already has proved he’s one of the best road- and street-course drivers in the series.
