Indy 500 2016: Lineup, Starting Positions, Drivers & Car Numbers

The official Indy 500 lineup has been formally announced, with none other than James Hinchcliffe winning the pole position. You might remember that the Canadian James had a near-death experience at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway last year, so it’s fitting that he’ll start the race this year in first place. That’s how you bounce back for the 100th running of the biggest race in America.

James won the pole position, his first-ever at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, by running a four-lap average of 230.760 MPH. Close behind was Josef Newgarden, who averaged just .060 MPH slower than James. Incredibly, the average speeds during actual races don’t┬ádrop as much as you’d think because of the traffic, so chances are that we’re going to see a pretty tight race.

Here’s to at least hoping that’s the case.
