As you can see, that's a star-studded entry list. Notable names are scattered throughout the ranks of this race.
Let's highlight a few drivers to keep an eye on.
Hunter-Reay has finished in third place for two years running on this Toronto street course. He's one of IndyCar's strongest racers, and a big finish on Sunday would give him a major boost in the championship standings.
He's currently three points behind leader Will Power in the current standings. Power is also running in this race, but Hunter-Reay's No. 28 car will need to outperform Power's No. 12.
This is the 10th leg of this year's series and wins become more important as the circuit rolls along. Hunter-Reay already has two victories this year, but a third would be the most important victory yet.
Dixon has won two IndyCar series in his racing career. With six races remaining in this year's run, he needs a strong finish in this year's contest in Toronto.
He's currently 15 points behind Power in the championship standings. Because of the tight standings, he is not out of contention.
A strong showing would give Dixon a major boost as we enter the final stretch of this year's IndyCar series. He has a reputation to protect and watching him negotiate Toronto's turns will be fun to watch.
