Race Notes

2021 race winner: Rinus VeeKay (Ed Carpenter Racing-Chevrolet).

2021 pole winner: Romain Grosjean (Dale Coyne Racing-Honda), 69.4396sec, 126.447mph. 

Qualifying lap record: Will Power (Team Penske-Chevrolet) 67.7044sec, 129.687mph, 2017 during Q3.

This will be the 12th IndyCar race held on the IMS road course including all Grands Prix of Indy, 2020’s Harvest GP double-header and the 2021 Gallagher Grand Prix). Will Power has won on this course five times, Simon Pagenaud three times while Scott Dixon, Josef Newgarden and Rinus VeeKay have each won here once.

In qualifying, Power has landed five poles, while Pato O’Ward, Grosjean, VeeKay, Felix Rosenqvist, Pagenaud and Sebastian Saavedra have one apiece.

In terms of teams Penske has won eight of the 11 races on the IMS road course, while the remaining three were clinched by Chip Ganassi Racing, Ed Carpenter Racing and, in the 2014 inaugural event, what was then known as Schmidt Peterson Motorsports but is now Arrow McLaren SP.

Josef Newgarden could clinch the PeopleReady Force For Good Challenge’s $1 million prize by winning on Saturday, as it would complete his set of winning an oval, a street course and a road course in the same season. The PeopleReady prize would grant him a $500,000 bonus and a matching $500,000 donation for his chosen charities, namely, Wags and Walk Nashville and SeriousFun Children’s Network.

Five of the six rookies – Tatiana Calderon, Devlin DeFrancesco, Callum Ilott, Kyle Kirkwood and David Malukas – will all be making their first IndyCar starts on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course. The sixth rookie, Christian Lundgaard of Rahal Letterman Lanigan-Honda, will be making his second start, as this was the venue for his IndyCar debut last August, when he qualified a startling fourth.
