Indy 500 2013: Complete Race Preview and Predictions
Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports
33 cars will start Sunday's 97th Indianapolis 500.

Sunday's 97th running of the Indianapolis 500—if it's anything like last year's race—figures to be one of the most competitive in the history of the 102-year-old race. Speeds are slightly up from last year's event, which was filled with close racing and lots of passing and wasn't decided until a daring last-lap move produced a crash in Turn 1.

Last year's winner, Dario Franchitti, is one of two three-time winners of The Greatest Spectacle in Racing trying Sunday to join the ranks of Indianapolis' all-time elite drivers with four wins.

Other drivers, like surprise pole-sitter Ed Carpenter or current NASCAR driver AJ Allmendinger, will seek to take the checkered flag, drink the traditional celebratory glass of milk in Victory Lane and have their face etched forever on the famous Borg-Warner Trophy.

Ahead, we'll preview everything you need to know about this year's Indy 500.
