Indianapolis 500 Winners

With Daytona not far away I'm getting excited for NASCAR, but let's not forget out open wheel friends. (Especially with more of them coming into NASCAR this year!) I got to go see this race once and would love to go back.

I did some research and dragged up the winners of the Indy 500!
