Memorial Day Weekend means IndyCar and NASCAR
Then, before we know it, the drivers will climb into their cars, try to settle their nerves, and set out to win the most storied race in IndyCar. It's now time for the 98th running of the Indianapolis 500. At the end, the winner will drink milk in Victory Lane.
Ed Carpenter starts on pole, and Kurt Busch and Juan Pablo Montoya will start together in row 4, with only Scott Dixon between them.
As we continue to honor those who have served and those who have paid the ultimate price for their country, the focus will shift to the Charlotte Motor Speedway, where NASCAR drivers will run 600 miles, racing from sun to stars. Kurt Busch will be in that lineup as well, starting 28th. His brother, Kyle, will start from the rear, due to a practice crash that sent him to a backup car. Jeff Gordon is still suffering back spasms, but is expected to start. Regan Smith is standing by.
So. Are you ready for racing's biggest weekend? Let the day begin!
