Description
The Indianapolis 500 is an automobile race held annually at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Speedway, Indiana, United States, an enclave suburb of Indianapolis, Indiana. The event is held over Memorial Day weekend in late May. It is contested as part of the Verizon IndyCar Series, the top level of American Championship Car racing, an open-wheel formula colloquially known as "Indy Car Racing". The name of the race is often shortened to Indy 500.
The event, billed as The Greatest Spectacle in Racing, is considered part of the Triple Crown of Motorsport, which comprises three of the most prestigious motorsports events in the world, also including the Monaco Grand Prix and the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The inaugural race was held in 1911 and was won by Ray Harroun. The event celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2011, and the 100th running was held in 2016. Will Power is the current champion. The most successful drivers are A. J. Foyt, Al Unser Sr., and Rick Mears, each of whom have won the race four times.

Will Power finally reaped the reward for containing the emotions that had once beguiled him. And then he let them loose to liven the celebration.
The 37-year-old Australian controlled the final quarter of the 102nd Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil on Sunday, but didn’t hold the lead for good until Stefan Wilson and Jack Harvey were forced to abandon a fuel conservation play in the final laps, allowing Power to give owner Roger Penske his record 17th win in the Verizon IndyCar Series’ greatest event.
For a driver who has seen championships and Indianapolis wins fade away under circumstances either bizarre or because of admitted lapses, the 2014 season champion – as has been his aim in recent seasons – was calm and methodical in victory.
