IndyCar Grand Prix of Indianapolis Race 2

IndyCar at Indy: – Start time, how to watch, entry list & more

All you need to know ahead of the 13th of 17 rounds in the 2022 NTT IndyCar Series, the Gallagher Grand Prix on the road course at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Will Power, Team Penske Chevrolet, Alex Palou, Chip Ganassi Racing Honda, Josef Newgarden, Team Penske Chevrolet, Patricio O'Ward, Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet, Conor Daly, Ed Carpenter Racing Chevrolet, Christian Lundgaard, Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing Honda, start

The Gallagher Grand Prix will be the 13th IndyCar race to take place on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s road course.  All IndyCar drivers who have won on this course will be in action this Saturday. Will Power has five IndyCar road course wins to his name, Simon Pagenaud has three, while Scott Dixon, Josef Newgarden, Rinus VeeKay and Colton Herta have one each.

All but one of the circuit’s polesitters will be trying to add to their tallies on Friday. Power has taken pole here six times, while Pato O’Ward, Romain Grosjean, VeeKay, Felix Rosenqvist and Pagenau have started P1 once. The absent polesitter is Sebastian Saavedra who took pole for the inaugural IndyCar race on this track in 2014.

Penske has taken eight of the 12 wins here, while Chip Ganassi Racing, Ed Carpenter Racing, Andretti Autosport and Arrow McLaren SP (at that time, Schmidt Peterson Motorsports) have one triumph each.

All five IndyCar Rookie of the Year contenders – Callum Ilott, Kyle Kirkwood, Devlin DeFrancesco, David Malukas and Christian Lundgaard – have at least one IMS road course start, having taken the green at the damp-dry-wet Grand Prix of Indianapolis back in May.

Meyer Shank Racing’s Helio Castroneves will make his 370th IndyCar start, which will break a tie with AJ Foyt for third in the all-time starts list. Meanwhile Scott Dixon will make his 301st consecutive start, the second-longest streak in IndyCar history.
