|Polesitter Ed Carpenter is one favorite to win the 500|
|A. J. Allmendinger has support to win Indy|
|My pick to win: Ryan Hunter-Reay|
The most important number is that the 97th Indianapolis 500, which used to also carry the moniker of an "International Sweepstakes", is now just a little more than three days away. It will my 38th in a row and I can hardly wait to see you all at 16th & Georgetown!
