When you watch the Indy 500 live stream, you tune in to see if we can relive 2008. No, not for any particular trend, technology or milestone: Scott Dixon (who last won the race in 2008) took pole and is looking to claim his second victory in one of the biggest races of the year.

The 106th race of the Indianapolis 500 will take place on Sunday, May 29 and will be broadcast live on NBC. Coverage of the Indy 500 will air live beginning at 11:00 a.m. ET on NBC and will continue until 4:00 p.m. ET. It will also be available to stream on the NBC Sports app and
That said, a higher number of victories is in the eyes of a certain Helio Castroneves, winner of the 2021 edition of the Indy 500 (his fourth). Castroneves would be the first to win the big race five times if he took first place this weekend. Unfortunately for him? Well, he’s ranked 27th out of 33 on the grid, so he’s already up against some strong odds.
Dixon’s teammate Alex Palou, who is 2nd on the grid, is also favored to finish in second place.

Oh, and speaking of those in need of 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.
