British Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton was among the auto racing betting favorites to win the 2016 Monaco Grand Prix for good reasons, and he delivered for online betting fans who put his money on him. By virtue of winning this race, Hamilton has become one of the few in F1 history to win it more than once, putting on a racing clinic on the Circuit de Monaco to claim his first win of the 2016 season.

The auto racing betting favorites to win the 2016 Indianapolis 500 will not just be competing to win any race – and under no circumstances is the Indy 500 any race.

Technically speaking, this will actually be the 99th scheduled 500-mile race of the canon, since the the1916 race was in fact scheduled as a 300-mile race – but don’t let that a matter as small as a couple hundred miles spoil the fun. This is still such a momentous occasion that Darius ‘Hootie’ Rucker himself will sing the national anthem.
