Indy 500 predictions review
By:
May 25, 2014, 5:51 PM

Christopher DeHarde recaps his pre-race predictions for the Indianapolis 500.

Before the race, I had some predictions that I had made about how the race would turn out. Let’s see how they played out.

Highest finisher from the front row: It was Will Power, as James Hinchcliffe and Ed Carpenter got involved in a late race accident. Power finished 8th while Carpenter and Hinchcliffe finished 27th and 28th, respectively.

Biggest gainer in the field: It ended up being Sage Karam, who gained 22 spots to go from 31st to 9th. Buddy Lazier only gained one, as he went out with 87 laps completed with a clutch failure.

Biggest loss in the field: Aleshin ended up actually losing only 6 positions, but the biggest loss of the day went as a tie to Carpenter and Hinchcliffe, who lost 26 positions each.

Driver with the most to race for: Well, that wasn’t really a competition, but Karam ended up showing that he deserves a few more races this year.

Winner: I had listed three drivers, and two of them finished 1-2 with Castroneves coming second behind Ryan Hunter-Reay.

33rd place finisher: It ended up being Graham Rahal. He retired with electrical issues, while James Davison ended up in 16th and Carlos Huertas finished 17th.

Highest finishing rookie: If you’re talking about Indy 500 rookies, it was Kurt Busch. If you’re talking about IndyCar series Rookie of the Year candidates, it was Carlos Munoz. Jack Hawksworth finished in 20th position, which was one better than Aleshin. He was the last car on the lead lap.
