Fans always have an opinion on who will win the race.


Race fans at Community Day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway certainly had opinions, and they differed. Many wanted Dario or Helio to join the elite company of winning 4 Indy 500's.  But the fans' predictions ran the gamut of choices.

"I'm going to say Josef Newgarden, actually," one fan said.  "I've just got a bit of a feeling.  I really like him.  I've met him a couple of times.  (He's a) great driver.  He's proved his talent here before.  He's won the (Indy) Lights race.  I think he's got a good shot."

Others wanted the local guy, and polesitter, Ed Carpenter to take home the Borg-Warner trophy.  "It's just something different.  With him being on the pole, it'd be nice to have the pole winner win this year," one fan said.

No matter who takes home the trophy, fans are in for a treat in the 97th running of the Greatest Spectacle in Racing.
