104th indianapolis 500  payoff

Takuma Sato COLLLECTS  $1.3 MILLION FOR WIN AT INDIANAPOLIS

BY tERRY dANIELS

is it the money or the fame ? for winning the 2020 indianapois 500

Takuma Sato was  just happy to win. More important than money, a second Indianapolis 500 title in four years will forever define his legacy as a  multi-time 500 champion.

Takuma Sato earned  $1,370,500 for Indy 500 win, which is the the smallest race purse since 1991 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway

having the race  in front of 250,000 empty grandstand seats because of the covid-19   pandemic was the reason for the small  purse

yes the television revenue was there as well as the sponsorship and  CONTINGENCY AWARD money was too however we all know the fan in the stand pays the majority of the racing purse

sato's take and the total purse  was far under what  Indianapolis Motor Speedway owner  Roger Penske unveiled in February to be   $15 million.

1.  Takuma Sato, $1,370,500

2.  Scott Dixon $505,000

3.  Graham Raha $403,500

4.  Santino Ferrucci  $300,000

5.  Josef Newgarden $251,000

after the last round of pit stops Sato inherited the lead with dixon in hot pursuit

scott was just in the wrong place when the yellow came out on lap 196 he had dominated the majority of the race leading 111 laps and had made several attempts to pass sato in the final laps of the race however sato was able to block him from getting around him dixon had the faster car

dixon woud not have settled for second if the track had stayed green there was a sure battle waiting to happen

Graham Rahal finished third  with Santino Ferrucci  fourth and defending champion josef Newgarden rounding out the top five finishers and without the yellow would have been very interesting last 10 miles of the race

Pato O’Ward was the top-placed rookie finishing sixth

pole sitter marco andretti was never a threat all day wound up thirteenth position and the continuation of the andretti curse at indianapollis

104th indianapolis 500  odds

scott dixon is the man to beat

BY tERRY dANIELS

scott dixon is the man to beat to win the 104th indianapolis 500 sunday august 23rd the 2008 champion is the odds on favorite driving for chip ganassi racing

former race winners  Alexander Rossi, Ryan Hunter-Reay lead the andretti motorsport team with pole winner Marco Andretti rounding out the top 4

team penske driver and defending 500 champion Josef Newgarden is somewhat of a long shot to repeat

honda power plants have the top 4 spots however have seemed to be a little less reliable than chevrolet for 5oo miles in the past at indianapolis

pole sitter marco andretti has been fast all month however has the one thing going for him at indianapolis and that is the "andretti curse' there.

if the indianapolis 500 would have only been a 400 mile race there would be 7 or 8 ANDRETTI likeness on the borg warner trophy INSTEAD OF THE ONLY ONE OF HIS GRAND FATHER MARIO FOR HIS 1969 WIN

in 2006 marco lead to the last 500 feet of the race when   Sam Hornish Jr passed him to win the 500

Rinus VeeKay leads the crop of rookies and was the only chevrolet in the top 9 qualifiers

i am going off the board by saying the 104th indianapollis 500 will be won by team penske with either Will Power, Josef Newgarden, Hélio Castroneves or Simon Pagenaud PARKING THERE CHEVROLET POWER PLANT IN VICTORY LANE

there are eight former drivers whom have tasted the ice cod milk in victory lane at indianapolis and and Hélio Castroneves has done it three times

it is erie  team penske has been quiet and strugglled all month i still say watch them on sunday

the entire practice sessions this year has been very quiet with only two minor incidents involving Scott Dixon and Fernando Alonso i believe the 104th indianapollis 500 will become a demolition derby by the time the checkered flag is waved

The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” takes the green flag at 2:30 p.m. (ET) sunday august 23rd, with live coverage starting at 1 p.m. on NBC and the  INDYCAR Radio Network.

How to bet on the Indianapolis 500

Betting on race cars bears some similarities to horseracing. So, if you are familiar with handicapping the ponies, there will be some familiar ground here.

Pick the Winner

The first and simplest type of Indianapolis 500 wager is to pick the eventual winner. Almost every site that offers betting on motorsports will have this kind of wager available.

The odds on these types of bets are usually fairly long, even for the favorites. There are simply too many variables in motorsports that can affect the outcome of a race.

As a result, even the favorites don’t less than 6-1 odds.

Even past winners, such as Helio Castroneves and Tony Kanaan, are available at odds higher than 10:1 right now. So, there is quite a bit of variance in these kinds of situations.

Top Three Finish

Those accustomed to betting on horse races will recognize this style of betting. For all intents and purposes, betting on a top three finish is the same as a win-place-show bet on a particular horse.

Basically, this type of bet means that the bettor believes the chosen driver will finish somewhere in the top three. Given how long the odds are for any of the drivers in the field, it’s understandable that bettors would want a bit of leeway in the finishing order.

Head to Head Matchups

Head-to-head matchups essentially reduce the entire race down to two drivers. A bettor wagers on which of the two will place higher, even if those places are the last two in the field.

These matchups actually use moneylines in order to identify the favorite and underdog in each pairing. So, hypothetically, Will Power could go off at -125 to Helio Castroneves at +145..and so on.

Futures bets

Functionally, a future bet is the same as a pick the winner bet. The bettor is choosing a member of the field to win the race.

However, the difference is time. These bets often occur weeks or months before the race itself.

As a result, they are subject to far more variation due to the risk of drivers suffering injuries, setbacks, or simply falling off their game in the interim time period. So, the odds for these bets can change quite a bit as race time approaches.

Proposition bets

Finally, a proposition bet on Indianapolis 500 tends to involve some sort of gimmick or angle to the wager. In other words, the conditions of the bet may only partially pertain to the driver’s actual ability.

So, a prop bet could be something like a wager on which former champion will place the highest, or perhaps a bet on the winner’s home country. In other words, a prop bet will have an element ancillary to the actual race itself that plays a part in the wager.

friday august 21st "CARB DAY"

Pato O’Ward: 225.355 tOps "CARB DAY" SPEEDS AT INDIANAPOLIS

BY tERRY dANIELS

today was the last time the 33 race cars will appear on the track before sunday's 104th indianapolis 500

no one was shy to take advantage of the near perfect track conditions today

cars ran under simulated race conditions  including pit stops

rookie Pato O'Ward set fast time in the first 15 minutes of practice at 225.355 in a chevrolet power plant with a tow and it stood for the next hour and forty five minutes or till the end of the scheduled two hour practice

2008 winner scott dixon who came within a blink of the eye of winning the pole last weekend was second fastest at 224.646 with 2016 winner Alexander Rossi third fastest at 224.599  both in honda powered machines

2017 champion Takuma Sato ran a lap of 224.580 and Oliver Askew's 224.128 which rounded out the top five

chevrolet seemed to have found some speed over the last 3 days with two of the top five and we will wait to see sunday if it continues there

the andretti curse at indy continues as marco struggled with the pole winning car all day and only   ran a lap of 221.314 to be a dismal  28th of the 33 cars that made it onto the track today afterwards andretti motorsports claimed they staged the bad day to test the crew

normally the team to beat team penske and defending champion Simon Pagenaud has had a quiet month

Josef was 7th quickest at 223.764  defending champion Simon Pagenaud: was 14th at 223.419 three time champion  Helio Castroneves was  17th fastest at  223.093  and 2018 winner Will Power: 222.578 was 24th i still say when they drop the green flag on sunday to watch out for these guys

Michael Andretti and Mario Andretti will ride in Honda’s  a two-seater IndyCar, alongside the pace car ahead of the Indianapolis 500 Sunday. The historic drive will be the first time that three generations of Andrettis shared the track at IMS together, leading the field where the youngest Andretti, Marco, sits on the pole position for the race.

friday august 14th "FAST FRIDAY"

 Marco's 233.491 makes him man to beat for pole run tomorrow at indy

BY tERRY dANIELS

the boost went up and so did the speeds on "fast friday"

marco Andretti led the final practice before  Qualifying this weekend at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on gfast friday

marco's  top lap of 38.5454 seconds, 233.491 mph conor daly was second fastest 38.7368 232.337mph and the only chevrolet power plant in the top 10 of the speed chart

the added turbocharger boost today through Sunday added approximately 50 to 75 more horsepower to the Honda and Chevrolet engines. and speeds increased 8mph from yesterday

team penske could only muster 11th quickest with will power at 38.8592 231.605 and that speed has the engineers there going back to the drawing board

The first day of qualifying takes place from 11 a.m.-4:50 p.m. tomorrow

all andretti motorsports on opening day of practice

BY tERRY dANIELS

after over a  90 day delay practice finally began for the 104th indianapolis 500 and the 1st for new track owner roger penske and James Hinchcliffe was fastest in the opening practice for the 104th Indianapolis 500  leading a strong day for Andretti Autosport.


2016 Indy 500 polesitter Hinchcliffe,  led the Andretti Autosport group with a lap of 40.0844 seconds, 224.526 mph

Hinchcliffe was one of three Andretti Autosport cars in the top four, while each of the top four drivers were powered by Honda engines

team penske cars was no faster than 6th overall with defending 500 champion josef newgarden with a lap of 40.3248 223.188 

All five rookies Oliver Askew, Dalton Kellett, Pato O’Ward, Alex Palou and Rinus VeeKay al  completed the rookie test and all but  Ben Hanley made a track appearance today

with only 33 driver car combinations everyone has a guaranteed starting position in the 104th indianapolis 500 I wonder if this will keep some teams from showing their true colors till race day


Friday is going to be interesting with the extra boost is allowed and will make saturday's qualifications very interesting

Practice continues tomorrow from from 11 a.m.-5:30 p.m
