It's time to watch the Indy 500 live stream, you tune in to see if we can relive 2008. No, not for any particular trend or tech or milestone: Scott Dixon (who last won the race in 2008) won the pole and is looking to take home his second win at one of the biggest races of the year.
The Indy 500 live stream is today (Sunday, May 29), and it's scheduled to begin at at 12:30 p.m. ET / 9:30 a.m. PT / 5:30 p.m. BST.
It's on NBC, Peacock Premium and Universo and should end by 4 p.m. ET.
That said, a higher win count is in the eyes of one Helio Castroneves, the victor in 2021's edition of the Indy 500 (his fourth). Castroneves would be the first to win the big race five times if he takes home first place this weekend. Unfortunately for him? Well, he's placed 27th out of 33 in the grid, so he's already up against steep odds.
Dixon's teammate Alex Palou, who is 2nd on the grid, is favored to finish in second place as well.
Also, it appears that the Indy 500 will be spared the showers that have been forecast for the bulk of the upcoming days in Indianapolis. Reports suggest that the clouds will part for a warm and sunny Sunday.
Oh, and speaking of those with needs for speed, Top Gun: Maverick (in theaters the Friday before the race) star Miles Teller has been selected to be the honorary starter for the big race.
