2014 Grand Prix of Indianapolis Race Preview and Predictions

Grand Prix of Indianapolis

To whet everyone’s appetite for the “Biggest Spectacle in Racing” with the Indianapolis 500 that will take place on Sunday, May 25 the IndyCar series will present the first ever Grand Prix of Indianapolis on Saturday, May 10 that will be run on a road course inside the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway. There have been road course races held at Indianapolis Motor Speedway previously including from the Formula One Circuit so the concept is not without merit or precedence. ABC will televise the action starting at 3:30 PM ET.

Top Drivers So Far

The first three races of the Verizon IndyCar Series were Grand Prix road course races which sets up well for this run with the IndyCar odds.

Will Power was the winner at St. Pete in the opening race of the season with a 2nd place finish at Long Beach and a 5th place finish at Alabama to lead the IndyCar Series standings with 125 points.

Ryan Hunter Reay was 2nd to Will Power at St. Pete and then had a poor 20th place showing at Long Beach before recovering strong to win at Alabama. Hunter Reay is 2nd in the IndyCar standings with 107 points.

Simon Pagenaud finished in 5th place at both St. Pete and Long Beach with a 4th place finish at Alabama to rank 3rd in the standings with 92 points.

Scott Dixon had a 4th place finish at St. Pete, was 12th at Long Beach, and 3rd at Alabama. Dixon has a total of 87 points which is good for 4th place in the IndyCar standings.

Mike Conway had a poor start to the IndyCar season with a 16th place finish at St. Pete but recovered nicely to win at Long Beach, only to then fall back again with a 14th place finish at Alabama. The roller coaster start to Conway’s season has put him in 5th place in the IndyCar Series standings with 82 points.
