Indy 500 live updates, results, highlights from the 2022 race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway

Got milk?

The biggest race day of the year comes your way on Sunday with one of the world’s most iconic races: The Indianapolis 500.

The field is set to go racing at 12:45 p.m. ET, and this year’s 33-car field will be paced by Will Power, who currently sits atop the driver’s standings entering Sunday.

While the field features eight former Indy 500 winners, it also features a few very notable rookies: NASCAR great Jimmie Johnson sits behind the wheel of a car in Indianapolis in IndyCar for the first time, in his first full season for Chip Ganassi racing.

Also a notable rookie is former Formula 1 driver Romain Grosjean: The Frenchman was behind the wheel of a Haas in F1 when a devastating, explosive car wreck ended his F1 career in 2020. After a few tests for Mercedes, Grosjean made the jump to Andretti Autosport this year.
