Yes, folks, it’s that time of year again! What’s synonymous with Memorial Day weekend? The Indianapolis 500, of course! Lots of questions arise surrounding the race and below you’ll find answers to those ever popular questions such as, What’s the Indy 500 lineup? What channel is the race televised on? What time? How about the weather?


Indy 500



Let’s get some particulars out of the way. The 500 is of course this Sunday, May 29th. What channel? It will be televised on ABC at 12:00 P.M. EST, so check your local listings as to what channel that is in your area.

Weather wise, it will be a hot one on Sunday. The high is expected to be around 90 degrees with party cloudy skies and windy conditions. So if you are lucky enough to attend the race, don’t forget your sunscreen and keep yourself hydrated!

This year’s lineup features four women – Simona de Silvestro, Danica Patrick, Pippa Mann and Ana Beatriz. We here at Right Fielders will be rooting for these amazing women – Girl Power!

Previous Indy 500 winners in this year’s lineup are: Scott Dixon, Dan Wheldon, Buddy Rice, Dario Franchitti (last year’s winner) and Helio Castroneves. Can Franchitti do it again this year and defend his title?

This is the 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis 500, and festivities surrounding the race/anniversary have boosted ticket sales. No doubt that makes for some very happy head honchos over at the Speedway.

This year the National Anthem will be sung as a duet (a first) by former American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson and Seal. David Foster will accompany the two on piano. I’m betting Heidi Klum will be there too, just sayin’.

I want to know who you think will be 2011’s Indy 500 winner? Leave your predictions below!
