 NOTES:
      The Indianapolis 500 is the sixth race on the 2015 Verizon IndyCar Series
 schedule. This will be the first oval event of the season. The first five
 races have been held on road/street circuits, including the May 9 event on
 Indianapolis Motor Speedway's 2.439-mile, 14-turn road course.
 
 This will be the 99th running of the "Greatest Spectacle in Racing." Scott
 Dixon will start on the pole in this race for the second time. This past
 Sunday, Dixon won the pole with a four-lap average speed of 226.760 mph.
 
 The Indianapolis 500 has traditionally run on Memorial Day weekend since 1911,
 except war years (1917-18 and 1942-45). It is the oldest automobile race in
 the United States.
 
 The track was once paved with 3.2 million bricks, earning the nickname "The
 Brickyard." A 36-inch "Yard of Bricks" remains at the start/finish line. They
 are the only visible bricks left at this historic facility.
 
 This famed 2.5-mile "rectangular" oval, which opened in 1909, has 9 degrees of
 banking in all of its turns and no banking on the straightaways. The lengths
 of the turns are 1/4-mile in length, while the straightaways are 5/8-mile
 long. The width of each turn is 60 feet, and the width of each straightaway
 measures 50 feet.
 
 Ray Harroun won the inaugural Indianapolis 500 on May 30, 1911.
 
 Three drivers share the record for most Indy 500 victories with four: A.J.
 Foyt (1961, '64, '67, '77), Al Unser (1970, '71, '78, '87) and Rick Mears
 (1979, '84, '88, '91).
 
 Mears holds the record for most pole wins in this race with six (1979, '82,
 '86, '88, '89, '91).
 
 There are seven drivers who have won the Indy 500 three times: Louis Meyer,
 Wilbur Shaw, Mauri Rose, Johnny Rutherford, Bobby Unser, Helio Castroneves and
 Dario Franchitti. Castroneves is the only one of those seven who is competing
 in this year's race. He won it in 2001, '02 and '09.
 
 In 2014, Ryan Hunter-Reay won the Indy 500 for the first time in his career.
 He also became the first American to win it since Sam Hornish Jr. in 2006.
 Hunter-Reay, the 2012 IndyCar champion, crossed the finish line just 0.06
 seconds ahead of Castroneves, making it the second-smallest margin of victory
 in the history of this prestigious race. The record for closest finish ever in
 the Indy 500 occurred in 1992, when Al Unser Jr. won by only 0.043 seconds
 over Scott Goodyear.
 
 The 2013 Indy 500 featured a record 68 lead changes among 14 drivers. That
 event also moved at record pace of 187.433 mph.
 
 Two drivers are scheduled to make their first starts in the Indy 500 this year
 -- Gabby Chaves and Stefano Coletti.
 
 Eight drivers have won the Indy 500 in their rookie year, with Castroneves the
 most recent one to do it in 2001.
 
 The winner of the Indy 500 has started from the pole position 20 times. The
 last driver to do it is Castroneves in 2009.
 
 Roger Penske holds the record for most car owner wins in the Indianapolis 500
 with 15. Team Penske has four entries in this year's race: Castroneves, Juan
 Pablo Montoya, Simon Pagenaud and Will Power, the defending series champion.
 
 Montoya won this race in his first start in 2000, driving for Chip Ganassi
 Racing. He went on to compete in Formula One from 2001-06 and then NASCAR from
 2007-13 before returning to IndyCar last year.
 
 Castroneves collected $3,048,005 for his 2009 victory, a record winner's purse
 for the Indy 500. Hunter-Reay earned $2,491,194 for his win in last year's
 race.
 
 The Borg-Warner Trophy, which is one of the most recognizable trophies in all
 of sports, has been awarded to every Indianapolis 500 winner since 1936.
 Crafted out of sterling silver by Spaulding-Gorham of Chicago, it was unveiled
 at a dinner in New York in February 1936, featuring bas-relief sculptures of
 every "500" winner up until that time. The new winner has been added every
 year since, and in 1986 (the trophy's 50th anniversary), the final space
 became filled. The solution for 1987 was to add a base, but this too became
 filled, and in 2004, an even larger version replaced it, this one with enough
 spaces to last through 2034. The only sculptured face not of a winning driver
 is that of the late speedway owner Tony Hulman, whose likeness, in gold, was
 placed on the base in 1987.
 
 The next IndyCar events are the Chevrolet Indy Duel in Detroit. It's the lone
 weekend doubleheader of the season. Race 1 at Detroit's Belle Isle Park road
 course is scheduled for May 30, and race 2 is slated for May 31. Power (race
 1) and Castroneves (race 2) won there last year.
