Drivers must complete 200 laps around the 2.5 mile oval — and if they win, their portrait will adorn the Borg-Warner Trophy.

Louisville may have all eyes on the Kentucky Derby right now, but here’s another race (and destination) we’re placing bets on — the Indy 500, which happens just two hours north in Indianapolis, IN.

On Sunday, May 28 (aka Memorial Day weekend), the greatest spectacle in racing returns for its 107th run, with:

  • 500 miles of track
  • 33 drivers in competition
  • Patriotic pre- and post-race traditions and celebrations
