Many people always wonder “When Does the Indianapolis 500 Start.” The answer to that question is 1:00 pm Eastern time on ABC television. Let’s consider other Indianapolis 500 betting facts.

Indianapolis 500 betting has seen a lot of history although in recent seasons the interest in auto racing has gone to NASCAR. As people consider the question of “When Does the Indianapolis 500 Start” they may want to know that the race is 500 miles which equates to 200 laps. The 2007 Indianapolis 500 betting winner was Dario Franchitti while the pole sitter was Helio Castroneves.

The 2008 Indianapolis 500 betting field will include the largest amount of rookies since 1997. The big names of Andretti, Foyt and Rahal will share the track for the first time since 1992. The Indianapolis 500 betting field this year will include Marco Andretti, A.J. Foyt IV, Larry Foyt and Graham Rahal. Marco is the 21-year-old grandson of Mario and son of Michael. A.J. is the grandson of A.J. Foyt, and Graham is the 19-year-old son of Bobby.

Indianapolis 500 betting for the 92nd Indianapolis 500 will be the first one with the IndyCar Series united. That means Team Penske, Dale Coyne Racing, Andretti Green Racing and Newman/Haas/Lanigan Racing will be part of the Indianapolis 500 betting field. Keep in mind that four drivers have won the first four IndyCar Series races of 2008. The top four drivers are separated by only 15 points in the standings. The points’ leader, Helio Castroneves has been in the Top five a total of four times but doesn’t have a victory in 2008. He sure does have a lot of Indianapolis 500 betting interest though after winning last year’s Dancing with the Stars. Castroneves won in 2001 and 2002 in Indianapolis 500 betting.
