Nineteen of the drivers entered have won at least one IndyCar Series race, including Will Power, the most recent Verizon IndyCar Series race winner after his win in the INDYCAR Grand Prix at IMS and Simon Pagenaud, who holds a 10-point advantage over Dixon in the series points standings.

Eight entered drivers have won Indy car season championships. Champions entered in the race include four-time Verizon IndyCar Series champion Dixon (2003, 2008, 2013 and 2015), four-time Champ Car champion Sebastien Bourdais (2004-2007), 1999 CART champion Montoya and Verizon IndyCar Series title winners Lazier (2000), Kanaan (2004), Hunter-Reay (2012), Power (2014) and Pagenaud (2016).

Four rookies are assigned to cars, including two-time Formula One champion Fernando Alonso along with Mazda Road to Indy graduates Jack Harvey, Ed Jones and Zach Veach. The Indianapolis 500 Rookie Orientation Program starts at noon (ET) Monday, followed by open practice from 2-6 p.m.
