Preview: Big Machine Spiked Coolers Grand Prix

The largest NTT INDYCAR SERIES field in a decade – for a race other than the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge – will assemble this weekend, appropriately at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Saturday’s 85-lap race will be the fifth held on the IMS road course in the past 14 months. In all, 28 drivers have led laps in these INDYCAR races, with Pagenaud and Dixon tied for the second-most laps led with 68 each. The INDYCAR rookie might have won for the first time in the series – he led a race-high 44 laps – if not for the second-half surge of VeeKay. His average finish is 7.2, and that includes an incident in the 2014 race that forced him to finish 21st. With five races to go, Palou leads the standings with Dixon second and Ericsson fifth.
