It’s the month of May and in the world of IndyCar racing that means all things Indianapolis. We kick off today’s TrackTalk by reviewing the news and notes from the IndyCar Grand Prix, and then provide our pole position picks for the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500.

So you’ve read through PART ONE and you’re not convinced? Everyone so far seemed awesome but, they don’t catch your eye? That’s fine! We’ve got twelve more drivers for you to peruse and decide who you’re going to cheer for, but choose quickly (and wisely)!
