2018 Indy 500 Entry List

We are now just days away from the largest single day sporting event in the world, the Indy 500. When legendary Blackhawks performer, Jim Cornelison sings 'Back Home Again in Indiana' and Chris Hemsworth waves the green flag before 300,000 fans, every one of those people will have chills run down their spine. Following the first 'Bump Day' since 2011, the lineup is set and the drivers are ready.
