Indy 500 Preview: Why This Is the Fastest Field in History

The starting field at the Indianapolis 500 has never been faster.

The 33-car group that qualified for the 98th running of the Greatest Spectacle in Racing did so with an average speed of 229.382 mph, nearly a full mile-per-hour faster than the previous record, which was set in 2002.

And that field is coming off the fastest race in history, won one year ago by Tony Kanaan, whose average speed of 187.433 mph (which includes much slower laps turned under caution flags) was nearly two mph quicker than the previous record, set in 1990.
