The Indianapolis 500, commonly known as the Indy 500, is one of the most prestigious motorsport events in the world. Held annually at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, this iconic race has a rich history dating back to 1911, so make sure you know where to watch the 108th running of the Indy 500.

The 2024 Indy 500 promises to deliver the high-speed thrills and competitive racing that fans have come to expect. With drivers from various backgrounds and racing series, the battle for the Borg-Warner Trophy will be as fierce as ever. It also forms part of the Triple Crown of Motorsport, alongside the Monaco Grand Prix and the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

In recent years, the Indy 500 has seen a resurgence in interest, partly due to the influx of international drivers and former Formula 1 stars. Drivers such as Fernando Alonso and Romain Grosjean have brought global attention to the event, showcasing the Indy 500’s appeal beyond the United States.

In 2024, fans are eagerly anticipating the performance of drivers like Josef Newgarden, who is coming off a strong season, and Scott Dixon, a perennial contender known for his consistency and racecraft. The rookies entering the race also add an element of unpredictability, particularly that of NASCAR driver Kyle Larsen, ensuring that the 2024 Indy 500 will be a spectacle not to be missed.

Reigning Indy 500 winner Marcus Ericsson is looking to defend his crown, but he has a tough job given he starts 32nd on the grid after a poor qualifying performance. Scott McLaughlin set the fastest four-lap average pole speed in the race’s history at 234.220 mph to take P1 on the grid in a Team Penske front row lockout with Will Power and Josef Newgarden.
