It’s the most looked forward to day in American F-1 Racing and the Indy 500 is finally upon us. The stars come out for the annual race but only one racer will be chugging that iconic bottle of milk when the dust settles and the race has been won. But the question everyone is pondering at the moment is who will be that lucky driver?

Marco Andretti is always a name to watch but Ed Carpenter is the guy leading the pack at the moment while guys like Scott Dixon aren’t far behind in terms of being a favorite among analysts to win the race.

But who will today’s winner be joining when it comes to drivers who have made their way to Victory Lane? The Indy 500 has been raced under five different eras in the sport’s history, so before we crown another winner let’s take a look back at who has come before today’s champion.
