Simon Pagenaud enters the race first in the standings with three wins in 2016. He has a 76 point lead over Scott Dixon.
Despite coming into the race atop the standings, Pagenaud is not the clear favorite to win today’s Indy 500. According to OddsShark, he shares that distinction with Will Power and last year’s winner Juan Pablo Montoya. Race fans can expect an exciting race on the 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis 500 with a highly competitive field.
